Our Vision

Portarlington Neighbourhood House is a welcoming light in an ever-changing environment.


'The Portal' is the initiative of the Thursday Night WritersGroup which is an established group that meets on a monthly basis to read and critique each other's work.  It was decided that rather than stories and poems remaining unread, the works would be published in magazine form and so, The Portal was born.


The Portal is published when there is sufficient material to create a magazine issue.  All past editions are listed and we hope to encourage YOU to read, enjoy and perhaps be inspired to join a writing group.













'House Proud' was a PNH initiative of some years ago, but was resurrected in a new form in 2018 by a team of volunteers interested in reporting, research and writing.  The first issue was published in October 2018 and the 'House Proud' team followed that up with two issues in 2019.  All issues have a community theme and stories are sourced from the PNH members to support that theme.
