Our meeting place - the Methodist Church

The Portchester Society meets on the first Tuesday of the Month at the Portchester Methodist Church in Castle Street at 7.30 p.m.
Guests are welcome as, of course, are visitors.  A donation of (£1) per head would be appreciated but in view of the quite modest subscriptions (£5 per person per year), you may prefer to join on the day thus saving the donation.
