Help Us Save the Portway Annex

We urgently need your help! Please fill out this questionnaire here

The Portway Annexe, formerly occupied by Somerset Skills & Learning for adult education, is being put up for sale by Somerset County Council and we need your help in saving it from developers, so it can continue to be used by and for the community of Wells.

Project Factory CIC is a social enterprise working with the community and enterprise to share knowledge and create potential. We organise events, develop collaborations and sustainable projects with community partners, and we run a range of courses.

Project Factory CIC is building on the success of the Wake Up Wells initiative which conducted community surveys, held a stakeholder conference and celebrated the community by bringing over 120 community groups and our residents together in a community day and Lantern Parade.

We want to connect, collaborate, communicate and celebrate with you - our community. Let's have some fun!


Covid is in our community.

Are you self-isolating, shielding or vulnerable?

Call WCN on 01749 467079 so that we can help you with:

  • getting your grocery shopping,

  • deliveries of pharmacy goods and medicines,

  • general advice,

  • a friendly chat and a listening ear.

Wondering what it takes to provide this service to our community?

It takes small acts of kindness from people like you.

Please consider whether there's anything you can contribute to help protect and support the most vulnerable and isolated people in Wells. Whether you can spare a few pounds, an hour of your time or some helpful skills, we would love to hear from you. And if you just want to help and you're not sure how, please do give us a call.

Let's come together to keep Wells strong in mind, body and spirit.
