LETS (Local Exchange Trading Schemes) is a way of exchanging goods & services with other people in the community without the need for money. LETS help regenerate communities and rebuild the local economy. There are many LETS Schemes running successfully throughout the world.
The kick-off meeting for the newly-formed Tamar Valley LETS was held in Kingdon House in Tavistock on 17 May. Robin Williams (local coordinator) and Rob Follett (Falmouth LETS) gave a presentation to introduce the concept to the audience. Since that meeting Rob Follett has created the website for Tamar Valley LETS.
The link is: http://tamarvalleylets.uk/.
The main purpose of this site is to enable members to keep track of credits (“Tams”) they earn when trading goods and services.
On the homepage of this website a link to an application form can be found. People wishing to join LETS should download this form, complete it, and post it to Robin Williams. They will then be given higher-level access to the site to enable them to begin trading.
Tuesday 20th June: 6.00 to 7.30pm
