We were delighted last night to welcome Elizabeth to become our newest member of Portland Rotarydetails

We are always looking for new members to join our Club and visitors are welcome to attend our meetings and events.
Portland is famous for the production of Portland Stone and this can be seen in many of the buildings in London. These include St Paul's Cathedral, Palace of Westminster, Tower of London, British Museum, Somerset House, Bank of England. The list is endless. Once an area dedicated to Defence and the Royal Navy, Portland has become a growing centre for light industry and water based leisure activities, possibly the most important of which is the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy, which was the Venue for the 2012 Olympic Sailing Events.
