  • Meet the Committee

    23rd Sep 2013
    Ever wondered what PCA Committee members actually do, or what they talk about at meetings?  Or even who they are and how they got on the Committee in the first place?  We’re aware this can all seem a bit of a mystery to the uninitiated, so we’re lifting the lid on the inner workings of the Committee by inviting PCA members to an informal Committee Open Evening at the Duke of Kent on Monday 7th October starting at 8pm, with drinks and snacks included.  This wi
  • Discretionary Cash Awards

    Earlier this year the PCA was granted charity status, and we hope to continue with our support for local groups and charities with the surpluses we make from our events.

  • River Brent Clean-Up

  • Club Car Cloned

    20th Jul 2013
    Pitshanger now has its second club car. In addition to the Toyota Yaris that has been stationed in Harrow View Road for about a year, we now have a smart black Fiat 500 that lives in a dedicated bay in Princes Gardens.
