March Newsletter

-------------------- March Newsletter --------------------

Thank you to all those who have completed and returned the Timebank questionnaires. It is not too late to return them if you still have one to complete. Sally will be looking through all of the data collected during the Easter holidays and will put together a feedback summary to share with you all in the next newsletter.

Timebank garden

On Sunday 8th April, please come and join us anytime between 12-4pm at our allotment.  Come and chat, help advice, dig and plant if you would like. All are welcome. We have potatoes and strawberries donated to us but do bring anything you would like to plant (we have plenty of tools). If it is a nice day, why not bring a bit of lunch with you to enjoy in the garden. Our allotment is next to West Wight Nursery in Totland (behind St Saviours Primary School, next to the graveyard).  If you need directions or a lift, please let Sally know.

Walking group

We enjoyed a lovely walk this month with Lois and would love to plan some more walks for the spring/summer. If you have any requests for short walks in the West Wight please let us know.

Book club

Our new book club is being held on the first Wednesday of each month at 7:30pm. This month we are reading ‘To Kill a Mocking Bird’ which we will be discussing at the next meeting.  If you are interested in joining our monthly book club, please let Sally know.


Knit and Natter

This is held on the second Wednesday of every month starting at 7:30pm in Freshwater. Please Sally know if you would like to join this friendly group and Sally can provide the details.  

Community Cook-up

We have asked local allotment holders if they would like to share any gluts of vegetables with us. We also plan to approach local farmers with the same idea.


Regular Time Bank Events


The next coffee morning will be on Thursday 29th March 2018 from 10:30-12pm at the WWSCC.

The Family Drop and Swap is held every Monday from 10am-12pm. This is every week except in school holidays.  Community groups have started to request the parcels of clothing, please do continue to donate clothes if you have any. Also, please do let us know if you know of a family who would like a parcel.

The next adult Drop and Swap after the Easter holidays at Our Place will be on Tuesday 17th April 2018 from 10:30-12.  We would appreciate your donations for this.

The next Time Bank Lunch will be on Friday 27th April 2018 from 12-2pm. This will be at ‘Off the Rails’. Please let Sally know if you would like a lift.


We would like to wish all of our members a very Happy Easter.
