Action Porty 2019 AGM

Thursday 21 February, 7pm
Celebration Hall, Bellfield

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Our Annual General Meeting is just around the corner, and we need YOU!

We need 10% of our Membership (47 of you!) to come along in order for the AGM to be quorate, so please help spread the word and show your support for Bellfield and Action Porty by joining us, however briefly.

Please let us know if you’re coming along through the Facebook event page, where you can take a look at the agenda. If you can’t make it, you can ask someone to act as your proxy – find out about proxy voting here.

If you can, do stick around for wine, cheese and soft drinks (all kindly donated) and tell us about your experiences of using Bellfield.

We’d love to gather your thoughts and suggestions to help us make Bellfield even better.


Here are the questions we’ll be asking:

  • What is your experience of Bellfield, and what are we doing well? How could we improve Bellfield, and how can you help us improve it?
  • What are the community needs that Bellfield isn’t yet meeting?
  • Should Action Porty become a ‘Community Anchor Organisation‘ for Portobello, and how can you help us play that role effectively?

If you’re really keen, you can also take a look at our audited accounts on our website.

We do hope you can come along and show your support – we look forward to seeing you next week!

Porty Panto at Bellfield

Surely it’s not Panto season yet? Oh yes it is! We’re getting ready for the Porty Panto at Bellfield which will be bigger and better than ever this year. Snow White and the 7 Dwarves is a family-friendly bonanza written by award-winning comic Keir McAllister and directed by Scottish BAFTA nominee Shauna MacDonald. Will Snow White wake up? What will become of the dwarves? It’s 2018 so expect a sprouted up modern tale told with all the magic of the classic fairytale, featuring a cast of comedy talent and over 30 local young people.

Snow White promises a dose of laughter and festive cheer for all generations. With a limited run of 14th-16th December at Bellfield tickets are already going fast so get your Christmas trip all wrapped up now. Book tickets online here (limited tickets available in person at Cove and The Skylark on Portobello High Street)

There will also be a relaxed performance on 16th December for adults and children who would benefit from a more informal atmosphere and this performance will also be British Sign Language interpreted. To request a booking email
