Welcome to Houghton & Wyton Timebank!

We are passionate about building a thriving community and spend our time engaging with local people and organisations offering support to everyone.  Members' ages range from 6-96, and with over 250 members who support each other, our exchanges range from simple DIY to prescription collection and much much more.  Use the tabs above to find your way around, and don't forget to follow our Facebook page for up-to-date information.

Below you can see a snippet of the kind of things we get up to...

Seaside Afternoon
Seaside Afternoon
For Feast Week this year, timebank organised a Seaside Afternoon where we enjoyed cream teas against the backdrop of the sound of waves and enjoyed the story of The Four Friends performed by professional puppeteer Zannie Fraser.
Coffee Mornings
Coffee Mornings
We have our timebank coffee mornings twice-monthly where we get together to connect and try new things. It's a great way to meet other timebankers face-to-face and find out more about timebanking.
Litter Picks
Litter Picks
Join us for our regular litter picks in the parish to protect our natural environment by keeping litter out of our waterways.
Digital Inclusion
Digital Inclusion
We are part of a digital inclusion project which aims to make sure that no one is excluded as lots of processes and services go online. These take place in the form of a drop-in session at our coffee mornings where our Digital Champions can help you with your queries.
Nordic Walking
Nordic Walking
We recently invited fitness instructor Sam Godfrey to speak to us about the benefits of Nordic Walking and let us try out the poles. We're hooked.
Digitising Cemetery Records
Digitising Cemetery Records
We are currently undertaking a project from the Parish Council to digitise our cemetery records so that we have an easily accessible (and maybe one day searchable) copy of these historical documents.
Village Spring Clean
Village Spring Clean
Thanks for a hardworking member of the timebank, The Green received some love as part of our Spring Clean before the Platinum Jubilee.
Pram Walks
Pram Walks
We have been getting together for Pram Walks on Friday mornings as a way of connecting parents and grandparents and benefitting our mental health by being outdoors together.
Baby & Toddler Group Shed Clean
Baby & Toddler Group Shed Clean
This is a before picture! You can see that some of the kids equipment in the shed had become quite dirty during lockdown, so some of our volunteers got together and cleaned both the shed and the toys ready for the summer.
Community Corner
Community Corner
Most Thursdays between 9-11am you can find me (Rose - the coordinator of our Timebank) in the Community Corner of Our Shop ready to answer your timebanking questions.
Loneliness Awareness Week 2022
Loneliness Awareness Week 2022
We marked Loneliness Awareness Week, run by the Marmalade Trust, by making friendship braids to either spark a conversation about loneliness or as a gift for someone who might enjoy a nice surprise through their letterbox.
