Local Exchange Trading Systems or Schemes are local community based mutual aid networks in which people exchange all kinds of goods with another - without the need for money - sounds very civilised and gets rid of the greed mentality that this world now seems to be suffering from. For example, it could be exchanges on gardening, surplus produce, household or car repairs, car lifts etc. Letchworth Arts and Leisure Group are asking its members if they would be interested in starting a group under their umbrella. Leave your name at David's Bookshop, Eastcheap. Of course, if you want to know more about LALG and the tremendous amount of diverse groups attached to them, then also enquire at David's - annual membership is very reasonable and there is plenty of choice. I wonder if I could exchange my old water tank for a state-of-the-art system - what's that I said about greed?
