Be Part of Portobello Central SCIO

What you can do for the Town Hall

We want Members so we can ask you for ideas, hear your suggestions, and let you know how things are progressing. We will be sending a regular update to Members to ensure you know what is going on and what you can do to help us bring Portobello Town Hall back to life.

Having Members is a solid sign that our community wants the Town Hall back. You can do as much or as little as you wish – just as long as we have your support.

It is free to be a Member.

The Formal Role

The Constitution sets out how the SCIO should be run. We need Members to help us ensure that the Trustees are answerable to our community. There are formal opportunities to hear what the Trustees have done and, importantly, elect a new set of Trustees every year.
