It was buzzing morning, a great boost for Ludmila who runs the cafe, and people shared skills and learned amazing new ones. People also dropped in who were not yet registered with the Timebank and found it so interesting that they registered there and then.

The community members who earned an hour’s credit by sharing their skills at this event were: Taira Khan, Vic Norman, Ros Southern, Corine Downey-Lamoureux, Begonia Belmonte, Rakesh Rootsman Rak, Sam Cowan, Maggie Sansom, Abdurahman, Muhammad Nasir, Linda Pearce, Olive Hamilton Andrews.

Thanks to the volunteer Timebank team, and especially Timebank manager Stephanie Mugo, for all the hard work to set up this great community building event.  🙂Linux low res
