LETS is coming to Tavistock

Press Release from Robin Williams, to be published in Thursday 11 May, edition of Tavistock Times

LETS is coming to Tavi

Have you heard of LETS – the Local Exchange and Trading System?  It’s coming to Tavistock soon, so climb aboard and improve your quality of life.

The concept has been around for decades but now exchanging and trading your goods and services has been made easy due to user-friendly software that keeps track of credit points earned by LETS members.

The points for a traded good or service normally reflect its equivalent Sterling value so, for example, an hour of tutoring would earn a member 25 points – as £25 is a typical charge for this service.  Everyone has something to offer.

You can mow someone’s lawn, dog sit, trade fruit and veg grown in your garden, lend out a specialised tool, drive another member to a local airport, etc.  The list is endless.

A meeting will be held in the “Studio” in Kingdon House, Pym St, Tavistock, PL19 0AW on Wednesday, 17th May from 2-4 PM to explain LETS in more detail.

Rob Follett of the highly successful Falmouth LETS group will be on hand to demonstrate the functionality of the LETS software.

Robin Williams, a Tavistock resident, will lead the discussion.  His immediate goal is to form a committee of volunteers to create a plan for a local group.
