Time Bank now has its own website at: Houghtonwytontimebank.co.uk
H&W Time Bank is a way of supporting the community, Houghton and Wyton already has a wonderful network of clubs and organisations and an amazing sense of community spirit. The H&W Time Bank wishes to continue to support this and help to develop new ways to make community links.
We are all very good at helping our neighbours and supporting our families, but do you have time and skills you could volunteer further. Maybe you are a whizz at CV's, maybe you enjoy dog walking, maybe you need some help with your garden.
Well the Time Bank needs your help!
It will be a way for people to help others in our community and be rewarded for it – in time. For every hour of time you give helping someone, you receive one hour of time credit.
The Time Bank will also be running fun, free activities in partnership with the local community.
What can you do with your time credits?
You can ‘spend’ your time credits when you need help from someone else. You can give them to another person who needs some help. You can save them.
As the Time Bank develops we will be making links with local businesses, such as cinemas and restaurants to gain discounts using your time credits.
It is already possible to use time credits towards adult learning courses in St Ives and at Wyboston Leisure Centre.
Anyone Age, ability, lack of finance or limited mobility are not barriers to participating in the Time Bank.
Look below for the ways in which you might get involved.
Our Time bank coordinator is Vickie Graham.
Vickie will be sharing the Parish Council office (St Mary's Centre) with our clerk and will be there on the following days and times.
