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.
We're moving most of our meetings back online again but hopefully just for this month, but we are now running walks.
Bracknell Area Meetings
The next Bracknell meeting will be on Wednesday 2nd February at 7pm. This one will be on Zoom again with a talk on home insulation. For March we expect to be back live at Foxes Den. We've got some more interesting talks lined up for future months.
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 on the third Saturday of each month in Reading between 1pm and 4pm.
We successfully restarted it from October onwards at the Biscuit Factory, a new community venue in Reading town centre. The one on 22nd January will be online only, but we will be back at the Biscuit Factory again for the next one on 19th February. 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. We have done some quite successful live ones recently. The next one is a Zoom on Tuesday 8th February at 10:30am.
We're starting to run monthly walks in the local area. See the Walks page for more details. The first two were in the Bracknell area and the next one on Thursday 17th February will be around Theale and Englefield for people who are at the other end of our area. - contact us for more details if you're interested.
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.
