10th November 2017. Christmas is coming to NCI Portland earlier than expected this year.
Residents and visitors to the island will soon have the opportunity to experience the sights, sounds and even smells of the festive season as the island’s flagship hotel, The Heights, is opening their doors for a unique event. This December the Portland Festive Fair will arrive at the hotel, running from Friday, December 1st until Sunday, December 3rd.
The fair will be raising money for two vital charities in the area, the National Coastwatch at Portland and Muntsy's - a service offering daily facilities for adults with additional needs or learning disabilities who wish to develop their independence.
The photograph (courtesy of the Dorset Echo) shows Mike Deadman and Jessica Orchard from the Heights hotel getting into the festive spirit.
