Wanna run away and join the circus? You'll need some tricks first! Kay is an international performer, hooper, and teacher from the UK! She is offering up one space on her course for 2 Time Credit. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested! It'll be a first in, first served! Check out all the deets on the event page.
Understanding our Aspirations! On Tuesday 13th February, the Steering Committee of Wellington Timebank got together and member Sonya led us in a workshop to set up some new systems for 2018 - we used our membership consultation to guide us in this! It was a great productive evening (with amazing food and a killer view looking out over Lyall Bay!)
Let's get together, have some chats, and share some yummy kai!
We are lucky to be joined on this occasion by special guest Reyaz Limalia, who has been one of the driving forces behind timebanking in the UK for the last 15 years. He will be sharing some stories and photos from his organisation Fairshares who do amazing work within their local community in Gloucestershire. Check out ttps://www.fairshares.org.uk/projects/ for more info.
We will be in the fantastic space that was Alpha Art and is now the One Collective upstairs at 55 Abel Smith Street.
We might be a bit belated on the "Happy New Year!" front - it's already February! Madness! Last year was a mad huge one for the Timebank - We had 93 new members and 3,474 1/4 hours traded. Massive! Back pats and high fives all around!
It's a great afternoon for a cold bevvy and a celebration of Chris -
coordinating superstar! All Timebankers welcome! See ya at 6pm!
A friendly reminder to get yourself down to Bebemos tonight to share a drink and a laugh with other Timebankers as we celebrate and thank Chris for his hard work over the last two years!

Kia Ora and Attention all Timebankers!
It’s with a sad face that we’re saying ‘See ya later’ to Chris Carey-Smith. He’s leaving us as co-coordinator to spend more time with his wee sprog Sofia! We also want to say a huge ‘Thank you’ and a big ‘You’ve been awesome!’ Head along to celebrate and thank Chris at Bebemos on Wednesday 7th February from 6pm. You can find Bebemos on the corner of Riddiford and Hall streets. All are welcome. If you don’t have the dosh to buy a brew on the night, tap Eryn or Maddie on the shoulder and we’ll shout you one from the “Pay it Forward” fund.
Cheers from your friends at The Wellington Timebank Steering Committee!
It's with a sad face that we will be saying goodbye to Chris. This means we have a job opportunity for the co-coordinator role. We're after another superstar who is both innovative and empathetic. We want to build on past (and current) successes and take Timebank to the next level! Check the link for details. https://dogoodjobs.co.nz/…/wellington-timebank-co-coordina…/
