Sharing your time and passion with the community through timebanking

The afternoon disco at the Conservative Club in Preston was brilliant as usual and Bob, who runs it with his pal Richard, sang as he often does

Last month, I was at the afternoon disco at the Conservative Club in Preston.

It was brilliant as usual and Bob, who runs it with his pal Richard, sang as he often does. What a powerful voice he has, it’s worth going just to listen to him!

The discos are once a month, on the first Thursday. The next one will be today, February 1. It’s a really fun afternoon.

They have a raffle, and the only charge to go in is a pound if you don’t belong to the club, but it’s free if you do. I often meet and catch up with Timebank members there. The seated yoga group also meets at the club on Thursday at 11 o’clock. I’m often there, so you can also find out more about the Timebank there if you want to.

The Timebank is about sharing time and skills with your neighbours, we meet regularly in various venues across the bay, do come and join us. So far it’s:

  • At the Bright Bean Café in Preston opposite the Tesco supermarket, from 2pm every week on a Wednesday.
  • At Centrepeace on the first Friday of the month from 2pm
  • At The Hyperspace Café in Lidl Square on the first Tuesday of the month from 10.30am onwards.
  • At the Torbay Community Café & Help Hub in Temperance Street, Torquay, on the first Monday of the month from 10.30am onwards.

 

If you would like to add more venues to this list, do get in touch with me.

Come along and join me for information or to join up, have a coffee and hopefully meet other like-minded people.

Torbay Together is the online platform for the Timebank. (www.devonconnect.org/torbay) You can register on the platform but then you need to do a little bit more and fill in another form to join the Torbay Timebank.

If you don’t use a computer, I can help. Come along to one of our regular meetings or give me a ring.

You can contact me by email: [email protected] or my work phone: 07703 715236.
