Houghton & Wyton Time Bank is One!!!
Houghton & Wyton Time Bank turned one on the 5th of September and what a year it has been! We now have 118 members and over 1200 hours of exchanges. So much has happened with regular coffee mornings, health walks and annual events such as lantern making, Spring fun and Summer picnics. New friends have been made and new networks of support offered. We have made links with Hunts Forum, Care Network and other Time Banks across Cambridgeshire. Our aim to be inclusive for all and offer support to all has become the values the Time Bank can rely on to ensure its success. But we would be nothing if it was not for the amazing network of members and community groups we have made links with. We are grateful for everything you do whether it be a cup of tea with an elderly member, to taking a dog for a walk or giving a lift to the doctors. We would not be as successful as we have been had it not been for all that you do. So thank you and long may the Time Bank continue to be a success.
To celebrate our first birthday the Time Bank is holding an AGM/Quiz on Friday 29th September from 7.30pm at the Sports Pavilion on Houghton playing field, please join us for refreshements, quiz, raffle and auction of Time Bank promises. Bar available to purchase drinks.

Welcome to Houghton & Wyton Time Bank's Website. Here you will find information about the Time Bank and how you can get involved. The Time Bank was launched by Houghton and Wyton Parish council in September and with the backing of the councillors has been working hard to help support and get involved in this wonderful community. Houghton & Wyton Time Bank has been running since September 2016, we are proud to have already achieved 75 members ranging in age from 6-95 years old. We organise regular coffee mornings and health walks for all age groups and you are more than welcome to come along. Click on the link to our events page above for more details.
A Time Bank is a fantastic way to meet new people and get involved in the community. We offer oportunities for all age groups to get involved and by giving your time to others you can support your community. Not sure if you have a skill to give give the Time Broker Vickie Graham a call to find out more.
What is the Time Bank?
It is a way for people to help others in their community and be rewarded for it – in time. For every hour of time you give helping someone, you receive one time credit. The Time Bank will also be running fun, free activities in partnership with the local community.
What can you do with your time credits?
You can ‘spend’ your time credits when you need help from someone else. You can give them to another person who needs some help. Or you can save them to use.
Who can join the Time Bank?
Age, ability, lack of finance or limited mobility are not barriers to participating in the time bank. Look inside for the ways in which you can get involved.
