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.
Although meetings are suspended, LETS is very much still running and there is a good group of people offering shopping and other help through our existing network.
We're in no danger of going out of business as we're outside the money system!
We're still running online meetings for the moment, with invitations being sent to our members. We are looking at options for in person meetings fairly soon now.
Bracknell Area Meetings
We normally meet on the first Wednesday of every month. However, for the moment we're suspending meetings in line with Government directives.
The meeting on Wednesday 7th July 7pm is still likely to be taking place on Zoom. Joining links will be mailed to members.
This month we've got a talk from a representative of Guide Dogs for the Blind who have their UK head office in the Reading area. If you're not a member but want to connect, contact us using the contact form lower down.
Normal meetings 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 at Great Expectations, 33 London Street Reading between 11:30am and 4pm.
As above, unfortunately we're suspending this for the moment.
However we are finally able to do an actual in person meet up in June. We are running a LETS stall at the Reading WaterFest in the Forbury Gardens on Saturday 19th June 11am to 5pm which replaces the usual M&G as it is the third Saturday. If you want to come and see us you'll have to apply for a (free) timed ticket to the Gardens from the Council. https://whatsonreading.com/waterfest900

Coffee Mornings often alternate between Bracknell and Reading or happen somewhere in between. As soon as we're able to run one again it 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 at 10:30am on Wednesday 23rd June.
As soon as Foxes Den is open to the public we'll be back there again.
