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 6th October 7pm is taking place at Foxes Den Cafe but with the option of joining it by Zoom if you don't fancy travelling This month will be our AGM but will include a talk on how the Foxes Den Community Cafe was started. 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 used to be on the third Saturday of each month in Reading between 11:30am and 4pm.
We are still looking for a suitable Reading venue. The next one on 18th September will actually be on Zoom again; one thing we've found is the online meetings were attracting people from across Berkshire. As there will be an opportunity to meet up in person at the LETS Town Meal stall the week after we've decided to run on line again. Details will be mailed to members.
If you're not a member but are interested, contact us using the message form below.
Coffee Mornings often alternate between Bracknell and Reading or happen somewhere in between. As soon as we're able to run them again they will be advertised here. We are running a couple of Zoom sessions a month instead in between the two main meetings. The next one's on Wednesday 29th September 10:30am. We are also looking for in person venues.
