Non-Timebank affiliated event of interest: Weds 25 Dec - The Free Church with the aid of The Rotary Club, St Ives Volunteer Office and businesses in St Ives are providing lunch on Christmas Day.

Current exchange opportunities:
Offer: Cambridgeshire area Timebanks have been offered an opportunity for members to see a live theatre performance of a comedic interpretation of Aladdin in Ely at Alive Corn Exchange - if you're interested please let me know ASAP, including which date you'd like: 20, 23, 31 December or 2 or 3 January.
Administrative housekeeping request: If you participate in an ongoing member to member exchange that originated through the Timebank, please let me know. It's key to whether the Timebank's liability coverage extends to you, and also important for measuring our Timebank's activity. Thank you!
Request: As you conduct your Christmas shopping, please consider also donating to the local food bank. Our Shop is collecting donations for items bought there or elsewhere.
Request: Member needs assistance with painting two ceilings she can't reach (she does have a step ladder, extender pole, etc, but is on the shorter side). She will have everything moved out of the way and is not looking for a professional result (consistent with our Timebanking rules) - just would like some help making it a bit tidier.
Thank you for all you do!
