I am pleased to say that at the end of the first week 16 people have now signed up, and 4 are waiting for references. Really hoping to get a lot processed this weekend and by the end of next week reach 50! I am very happy for anyone to pop to my home Saturday morning – tomorrow – between 10 and 2. If you are interested, email or ring me and I will give you details.
All hands on deck please to promote the Timebank, seek help from me if you need it.
There will be another community meeting at the Flirt Cafe, 361 Ley Street, Ilford, IG1 4AA. Thursday 26th June – 10.30-12.00. Teas & coffees are on us. This is for new people (not the same as last week) to meet each other and explore the skills, gifts and wisdom in our community and to find out a bit more about each other and the things we could do for each other on the Timebank.
I am looking for other venues for community meetings now around Seven Kings, Newbury Park, Ilford, Goodmayes, Chadwell Heath. We need to find venues that would benefit from footfall and promotion (e.g. we help them) and that could offer us free drinks or would let Sophia Hubs bring our supplies (e.g. they help us). Any ideas – please let me know.
We will be attending the Area 5 festival on Sunday 13th July (Barley Lane Recreation Ground 12-4) and will be running some community conversations and meet-ups there on the topic of the sharing economy, and ways to support start-ups and the local money economy.
