Last week Michael asked for a lift to Stansted and received it immediately from Anthony.
Yesterday I needed someone to take a large package to the post office, Hugo posted it within a few hours,
Carmen needed a responsible and reliably babysitter so Manon came up trumps
Bea was looking for someone to do some weeding, Agi who likes gardening replied and managed to do a straight swap with Bea as she will be helping Agi's daughter with reading.
Pavline mentioned that she was going to France and asked if anyone wanted something bringing back, looks like Anthony spent his gem from Michael to pay Pavline for some goodies.
This morning I sent out an SOS to have some gardening help to move an awkward raised beds and compost from one garden to another. I was so pleased that Estelle responded so quickly so that we can do this together. It looks like we are getting there.
25 members to date, so as before when I set up the Skills Exchange, that seems to be the amount of wonderful people in a very compact area you need to get together to start up a community building event like this.
Bea is going to organise a social so that we can meet each other over a cuppa or drinks and nibbles.
A great start. Long may it continue.
We are now looking for more skills like: Plumbing, Electrics, DIY, Health and Beauty, Alternative Therapies, hairdressing etc
