Chai and Cheers

Had the usual core Porty Central group meeting on Monday night. Nearly a full house again and a fun, positive meeting. It was mainly taken up with practicalities of how we’ll select candidates and running interviews for our development manager contract but working out a process to become a member of Portobello Central SCIO was on the agenda too. Please do share the job advert with any suitable candidates you might know. Or, if the suitable candidate is you, get in touch before 17th September.

Just a couple of community info notes. 

Firstly, Saeema at Bridgend asked me to flag up her ‘It’s Naan Brainer’ Punjabi/Pakistani cooking masterclasses at Bridgend Farmhouse. With a pun like that I was powerless to resist! 

For more details see flyer or to book please contact Saeema:

thechailadies@hotmail.com

Secondly, Portobello Community Energy have put out a local Travel Survey. The survey is online (from the links below) and takes only 5 to 10 minutes. They would be delighted if you could complete this! Please pass on to any family and friends in Portobello asking them also to complete it.

Local Business Survey: https://freeonlinesurveys.com/s/SMElgcMI

Closing Date: 1st October 2021 

The way we travel is just one thing that needs to change over the next 5 to 10 years if we are to do our bit for climate change and to make Portobello a better place. It is important to find out what our community needs and how it feels. So ideally they want to bring this to the attention of everyone in Porty and seems a worth while cause to support. They are also looking for volunteers to deliver leaflets in the next few days, so if you fancy that drop portycommunityenergy@gmail.com an email.

Tells us what you want to hear about on here. Keep in touch.
