A NEW drop-in centre has opened its doors in Paulsgrove.

The centre, in Allaway Avenue, sees two of Portsmouth City Council’s teams working together to provide advice, support and opportunities.

The green neighbours project aims to develop a group of residents to become volunteers and share their knowledge of energy saving and recycling with friends and neighbours in their community.

Louise Ellison, greener homes project manager, said: ‘Paulsgrove residents can easily find out how to save money on their fuel bills, reduce food waste and improve their recycling by having a dedicated local team in their community.

‘There are some great opportunities for residents to volunteer, or just pop in, discover more about what we do, and find out about upcoming events.’

The centre was officially opened yesterday.
