Portland Needs You!


Oyez! Oyez! Oyez!  Volunteer required to become Portland’s Town Crier, to promote Portland and appear at civic occasions.

So if you can belt it out we want to hear from you!

Just think how great you’re going to look as you make some noise at the annual Ceremony of the Keys.  Come and have a chat with us in May and take part in a special event to choose the Town Crier during the summer.

You must have a clear and powerful voice, a sense of occasion and fun, a passion for Portland’s history, personal reliability, with your own transport and a valid driving licence.  The Town Council will provide the necessary regalia.

Write to the Town Clerk, enclosing your CV, at Portland Town Council, Council Offices, Fortuneswell, Portland, DT5 1LW.  If you have any questions you can call them on 01305 821638 during our office hours, Monday to Thursday, 10.00 am to 2.00 pm.
