  • On The Lane

    20th Jul 2013
    One of the scarier sights seen on Pitshanger Lane recently was a lycra-clad John Martin preparing for his upcoming thriathlon on Sunday 28th July. John was posing for passing shoppers astride his triathlon bike hooked up to a static training rig, which looked as though it was set on minimum resistance.
  • St Barnabas Proms

    20th Jul 2013
    One of the highlights of our thriving local music scene is the St Barnabas Summer Proms, which start on Saturday 20th July and run through to a special Last Night Of The Proms concert on Friday 9th August. Admission for each evening concert is £10 (£5 for young people), except for the 'Last Night' Gala which will be £20, and the 'Come and Sing' Creation which will be £6. There are no advance ticket sales as the church is large enough to accommodate all comers.

  • Behind the Scenes at the Museum

    When Gunnersbury Park Museum recently offered community groups and local historians a "behind the scenes" tour of the museum, PCA Committee members John Waters and Kelvin Walker jumped at the chance.
  • Where Are They Now?

    20th Jul 2013
    We knew the PCA Newsletter had a wide readership, yet were surprised recently to receive an e-mail from a former Pitshanger resident now living in Australia.
