Bellfield is the new community hub at the heart of Portobello and Joppa.

After a campaign to save the former Portobello Old Parish Church buildings for community use, the group Action Porty were granted the right to buy the buildings by the Scottish Government. The Scottish Land fund agreed to cover 94% of the purchase price.

Action Porty are now working on bringing the community’s vision for the space to life. Doors are expected to open in June 2018.

Currently, we are running a crowdfunder to raise funds to renovate the space and pay off the remainder of the purchase. Please donate here.

You can become a member of Action Porty here.
