Redbridge Timebank logoWe are delighted to announce…

the next Redbridge Timebank community skills swap will take place at the fab Give and Take event on Tuesday afternoon 28 March.

This is our first partnership event sponsored by Amey Ltd, the Company that provides environmental and waste services for Redbridge

Tuesday 28 March, Redbridge Institute main hall, afternoon

This will be our 15th skills swap event and we are currently booking in people to share skills. Please make contact if you are willing to participate or  have a particular skill you would like an hour’s help with. 🙂

Recycling heart AmeyThe Give and Take stall is a successful way of promoting recycling and re-use.  I  think it  is an excellent  opportunity to be involved in the recycling of skills too and to be part of the community skills swap.  You can bring along items like books, CDs, DVDs, sportswear, clean clothes, bric-a-brac, homeware, kitchenware, toys and games.  I look forward to seeing you and sharing recycling and re-use tips as part of the Timebank event. See the flyer for  more  information” Habiba Ahmed
