News

We hope you like the new website layout. After studying the statistics it became clear that the majority of people visiting used mobile devices, so we have redesigned the site slightly to make it more friendly to mobile phones and tablet computers. Just as we launched the new layout Google announced they were to 'prioritise' websites which are mobile friendly, so hopefully that will raise our online visibility a bit more.

Friends of Portland Works

News from our neighbouring Friends group. You may soon hear in the media that Andrew Lloyd Webber has sponsored an award through English Heritage.  The great news is we - or rather our volunteers - have been short listed for this award, which will be made on 9th September in London.  Seven of our volunteers will be going down for the event and we'd love them to win.

The job in question is the restoration last year of the 'showroom' block from a near ruin to a suite of very pleasant workshops and studios on a shoestring budget.

What is needed now is your vote - BEFORE 16 August.  It's an online job, and you'll be asked for name and address etc but there's nothing else to it - just put a mark against 'Friends of Portland Works' .  We're in the Best Rescue of a Historic Industrial Building or Site category, and there are 4 in this group.
