I'll scratch your back...
We're just like you, busy people who want to help each other out - bringing back that community spirit. We've got time, skills or energy when you don't have. We have tools, we can give lifts, we can clean houses, do gardening, look after children, look after homes, help sort and tidy up your home.
We've also got people who need some help - like transferring music from CD to MP3, knitting; or a bit of light gardening, small DIY skills, sewing, posting letters, having shopping done and delivered, borrowing tools, taking a trailer of garden waste to the local amenities centre.
We have people who make amazing food for dinner parties, cakes, jams and breads.
Its all about helping each other out; one person helps another, and then that person helps another, and then...
... you scratch someone else's!
Come along and try us out - we're a friendly bunch.
Bracknell Area Meetings
The meeting on Wednesday 3rd November 7pm is at Foxes Den Cafe but with the option of joining it by Zoom if you don't fancy travelling. This month Michael Bright will talk about water in this area, how it is collected, made safe, and supplied to us, and how waste water is treated and disposed of. If you're not a member but want to connect, contact us using the contact form lower down.
Meetings are 7pm at Foxes Den Cafe Benetfeld Road Binfield RG42 4EW. It's got its own car park and there is Wi-Fi so you can get help with CES access and logging transactions.
The Meet & Greet is usually on the third Saturday of each month in Reading between 11:30am and 4pm.
We successfully restarted it in October at the Biscuit Factory, a new community venue in Reading town centre. For November it will be on Saturday 20th November at the Biscuit Factory again though we may start it a bit later, details before the time. The Biscuit Factory is at the right hand end of the Broad Street Mall. Entry is via the cafe on the corner; upstairs is a three screen cinema with a large foyer area and a balcony overlooking Oxford Road.
Coffee Mornings often alternate between Bracknell and Reading or happen somewhere in between. For a while we had been running a couple of Zoom sessions a month instead in between the two main meetings. The next one on Wednesday 27th October 10:30am is an in person one at a new venue, Characters Cafe in Wokingham .
We're still doing at least one of these a month for people who don't want to travel, as well as having Zoom options available for as many as possible of our in person meetings. The next Zoom only Coffee Morning is 10:30am on Thursday 21st October - details will be mailed to members.
We now running normal meetings at Foxes Den again.
There is also an option to join us by Zoom for people isolating or having problems travelling.
