VIEW THE COMMUNITY DIRECTORY - The Community Services Directory was an initiative of the PM Neighbourhood Centre and supported by Port News. A free printed version was made available each year listing many local community organisations, support groups, special interest & sporting groups. The first edition became available in 1988 and continued each year until 2009. With changing times and increased costs unfortunately we were required to cease printing the CSD, however we continue to update this information and it is all available on this website.
