Exmouth LETS – the town’s not-for-profit community-based barter system – is having a bring-and-share supper, plus ‘fun activities’, from 5pm on Saturday, November 15, at the Rethink Centre in Meeting Street.
LETS comprises individuals and groups from Exmouth and surrounding areas who have pooled their skills and resources to form a local network, allowing members to trade goods and services without using money.
Instead of using pounds and pence, Exmouth LETS has its own virtual ‘currency’, the Cockle.
Launched in 2010, the system needs new members to boost the services and goods it can offer. Thus the supper – described as a ‘good way to socialise and meet other members’ – is open to guests and non-members.
“Following the meal, we have a couple of activities planned,” said Marian Beaumont, Exmouth LETS’ secretary.
“There’s a repeat of the popular ‘rant’, which gives you the chance to let off steam and get that pet topic off your chest. “And there’s the LETS take on speed dating. ‘Speed Trading’ is a fun way to meet everyone and exchange information on what you have to offer and what you’re requesting on the LETS scheme.”
The supper follows LETS’ annual general meeting (for members only) at 4.30pm.
New members can join LETS on the day, £5 for annual membership. More details: www.exmouthlets.org.uk/
