PortShare Resource Register
better for assets to wear out than rust out PortShare aims to support groups through sharing. We are a small town and it makes sense to share what we have. Often community groups only need a particular resource occasionally and sharing means not spending money unnecessarily. If your community group has resources you are willing to make available to others at no cost, a fee or donation, please send info to the email tree and it will be in our fortnightly email tree and on this website. Does your group need to borrow something? Try asking through PortShare. I’m sure there will be either a positive response or suggestions. Check the latest PortShare Resource Register March 2017 Thanks to all who have offered their resources to others.
Contact information: businesses, churches, community groups and clubs, community information and services
All community group contact details, Justices of the Peace, hospitals, transport and much more are now accessible here. It’s the 2015 Portarlington Business and Community Directory. The directory also has contact details for members of the Portarlington Business Development Association who publish the annual directory.
