Melbourn Timebank

Welcome to Melbourn Timebank.

We are setting up a brand new Timebank for the people of Melbourn (and  surrounding villages).  This is a new and exciting venture to try and bring the village community together by sharing our time and skills. Everyone is welcome regardless of age or abilities, including local businesses and organisations.

We will be having our coffee morning weekly on a Wednesday from 10-12, for people to come along and find out more about Timebanking.  

We will be having the majority of our coffee mornings in The Communty HUB which will be on the 1st, 3rd and 4th weeks per month. We will be having or coffee morning on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at Moorlands Court at Moorlands Close, Melbourn SG8 6HF.

We will be looking to arrange other social activities soon.

This is your Timebank / community, so we welcome your ideas and feedback as we develop and grow.

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.
