Timebanking is a way for local people to come together and help each other by exchanging knowledge, help and skills. 

Everyone has something to offer a Timebank from making a cake, picking up a prescription, walking their dog, doing some gardening, visiting someone for a cup of tea, welcoming new residents to the village, whatever you do will make a difference to the person that needs your help.

You get an hour’s time credit which you can use to get something back. That may be help with your mobile/tablet, learning how to hem a skirt, someone picking up a loaf of bread, or gaining some new skills.

Everyone’s time is equal, so one hour of my time is equal to one hour of your time, irrespective of whatever we choose to exchange.

However it’s not just about giving and receiving. Timebanking is also about bringing people together to build a stronger, safer and happier community.

The exchanges can go on and on, as do the new friendships, connections and networks that are made. Members feel less isolated and more supported in their own community.

For more information please contact our Timebank Coordinator Steph Trayhurn on 07483 176929 or 01763 263303 Option 3 or email: timebank@melbournpc.co.uk

Hope to see you soon.
