What is a Portfolio?

Each Portfolio has been compiled with the aim of providing members with information on a particular subject. They contain notes, comments, plans, sketches, drawings, photographs, timetables, newspaper cuttings and references to other sources of information, etc. The system works on a reciprocal basis, thus any information an individual has, which they are willing to share, should be enclosed when returning a Portfolio or sent direct to the Portfolios Organiser so that it can be inserted in the appropriate volume.

How to obtain a portfolio

The Circle Portfolio service is provided as a benefit for members only. To take advantage of the benefits of obtaining the latest relevant books and publications at the discounted rate please consider joining the Circle via our joining page here. 

With the increase in postage costs it is not usually realistic to send portfolios through the post, but they can be collected at a meeting or by arrangement with the Portfolio Officer. An ever increasing number have been scanned and are available on CD. There is a nominal change of £5.00 per CD to cover copying, postage and packing, but the Portfolio officer will fit as many Portfolios on a CD as possible.
