How to get involved with the Port Environment Centre

Supporting our Gathering Place

The Centre is a place that people can drop in to browse our resources, read and chat, check on opportunities for volunteering and access local information. PEC has some regular centre volunteers who can assist further with answering enquiries, keeping the Centre clean and well-presented, setting up for workshops and events, ‘hosting’ events or workshops at the Centre. If you are interested in joining us as a volunteer, please register your interest.

Community environment groups are welcome to use the Centre, in line with our purpose, e.g. for a regular monthly meeting. We support many local groups in this way. If this is something you would like to learn more about, please contact us or check out further info here.

We also try to support local groups and love to discuss new project ideas, explore ways to collaborate or help to promote local environmental groups and activities. Please get in touch with us to find out more.


Living Sustainably

We offer a range of events, workshops and activities to help you live more sustainably. Make sure to join our mailing list, so you don’t miss out on upcoming activities. 

Or drop into the centre to ask questions and get great advice on waste and recycling, our local environment, gardening and composting, or connecting into local environmental opportunities.


Caring for and Learning about the Natural Coastal, Marine and Estuarine environment

PEC promotes the activities of local environment groups and coast, marine and estuarine groups. Come into the Centre &/or look online to find out what these groups are doing and how you can get involved e.g. dune care, seagrass monitoring, clean ups, citizen science initiatives. 

We offer a range of workshops, events, walks and activities to help you learn more about our local environment, as well as offering resources and information online and through handouts available at the centre.

Our e-news is also a great way to hear about other ways to get involved and learn more.

If you have a great idea for an environmental project or group, do get in touch. The Centre can offer support and advice and help you connect to the right people. We can also help to promote your activities.
