Public invited in to see what Portway Annexe has to offer

A GRAND launch of the newly refurbished Portway Annexe took place on May 14.

People were able to tour the building to see what it has to offer now that it has been bought and revamped by Wells City Council.

Community groups have already started to make use of some of the rooms, which include a meeting room, an IT room, a cafe, a craft room, an audio-visual room and a music room. All of the rooms have been named after a different Freeman of the city such as Michael Chamberlain and Mary Bignal-Rand.

Town Clerk Steve Luck said: “We are delighted it is open, and it will be a great community asset. The feedback so far has been very positive. We’re very  grateful to everybody who has worked hard to make this vision come true.”

To enquire about using space at the Portway Annexe, contact Alex Westwood at Wells Town Hall on 01749 673091.
