Royston Open Secrets 2011 was a great day despite the weather! The people who attended and stopped to chat were all really keen to find out about the Time Bank, how it could possibly help them and how they could get involved to build a stronger community in Royston and the villages.
I took the opportunity to network and chat to the other charities, organisations and clubs who were there. The day resulted in new members and possible themes and offers of help for our Time Bank Cafe sessions. The Cafes are purely social and held on the Third Wednesday of the month from 1:30pm-3:30pm at the Coombes Community Centre, anyone welcome!
I was also looking to promote the new Time Bank Garden Team, which we had recently launched to help rejuvenate the gardens of Royston, whilst helping local people give back to their communities, meet their neighbours and make new friends.
