An important aspect of the work of the core group is organising Social Events and Trading Days. The social events, which have included picnics, walks and meals out, are primarily for LETS members to get to know each other better. The trading days are designed to encourage trading, although they also have a social element. In Trading Days, various LETS members set out stalls that illustrate what their offers are, and revised lists of offers and wants are compiled, which may lead to trades being arranged there and then.
Five of us met up for a meal in the Standing Order last Friday for food (and beer of course). A good evening was had by all and we are planning to do it again in the near future. We thought we’d try The Bridge Inn next time.
