In line with Government advice, most groups and organisations in the city have had to take the unfortunate decision to suspend face to face and group work activities. Please telephone or email the contacts listed for the group or organisation if you are interested in their work to check what alternative arrangements might be available or to find out about alternative groups or services in your area.


Portobello Timebank

Come along and meet members of your community over a cuppa and something delicious.

Meet new people, discuss what matters to you, what you think about our community or just about the weather or anything you fancy a natter about!

Community Chat Café is held on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of each month.

Everyone welcome all ages, abilities, friends, acquaintances and those we have yet to share a yarn with.

Hot drink and scone £3 / hot drink and cake £4 (discounted rate).

Background of cafe...

We were approached by LOOPS (Local Opportunities for Older People) to take part in establishing a regular get-together for folks in Porty, where they can have a natter over a cuppa.

LOOPS focus on the over 50’s, but we in the Timebank know that there’s a lot to be gained by mixing generations, so there’s no lower age limit (our youngest attendee so far was 3 months!). And when we say ‘Portobello’, if you live further afield but can hop on a 26 bus, you’re very welcome to join in. Furthermore, if this is not your thing but you have a neighbour who might be interested, why not tell them about it?
