More About Tamar Valley LETS
| Who can join?
Anyone and everyone; individuals, charities, organisations, businesses.
Tamar Valley LETS is open to anyone in our catchment area - it's about
making connections and building community - and all kinds of skills are
welcome and needed. LETS Schemes offer many social as well as economic
benefits. In the Tamar Valley we hold regular group meetings and social
events - see News & Events.
The Tamar Valley LETS Directory and Contact List are online,
but members can save and print them off once logged in - for their own
convenience, or to help other members who don't have easy wifi access.
How to trade: LETS is interest
free and you do not have to earn credit before you spend, so once you
have joined you can start trading immediately. You may contact a member,
make arrangements about time, rate etc, and when the job is done you
can click on "Transactions" and transfer Tams to the person who did
the job (or sold you something) - the system also enables invoicing
if preferred. Members who are not online can make out a paper LETS cheque
to the seller authorising the transfer of the agreed number of Tams
to their account. The seller then sends the cheque in to Tamar Valley
LETS Admin, who records on the LETS accounts - similarly, stall-holders
at fairs may compile a list of trades.
To join Tamar Valley LETS - as
an individual, household, business or organisation - you may fill in
and return a joining form with your subscription or donation, or bring
both to a meeting - or you can access and submit an online form. Your
Tamar Valley LETS account gives access to the members' facilities on
this website. See help page for
