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 next Bracknell meeting will be on Wednesday 7th September at 7pm live at Foxes Den. It's our AGM with a musical performance afterwards.
Meetings are 7pm on the first Wednesday of each month 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 on the third Saturday of each month in Reading between 1pm and 4pm.
We restarted it from last October at the Biscuit Factory, a new community venue in Reading town centre but we've been trying some other places. The Meet & Greet for August will be at Greyfriars Atrium Cafe again on Saturday 20th. We've done a couple of good ones there so may make it the permanent venue in future.
Not strictly a LETS event but some members are involved or will be interested in the next Reading Repair Cafe. There isn't one in August, the next one will be Sunday 18th September at rLab (Hackspace) in Weldale Street Reading from 12 to 4:30pm.
Coffee Mornings often alternate between Bracknell and Reading or happen somewhere in between. We have done some quite successful live ones recently but some online ones as well.
The next Garden Party will be in September, look out for details.
We've been running monthly walks in the local area. See the Walks page for more details. The first two were in the Bracknell area and then one in Theale on the other side of Reading for a change. The next two were in the Bracknell area but eventually we want to establish some Reading ones as well.
At the moment we're thinking maybe Summer isn't the best season for walking and we've got plenty of other outdoor events so we are taking a break until Autumn. Keep and eye on our Calendar and Walks pages for updates.
We are now running normal meetings at Foxes Den again.
