Co-op Comes up Trumps
Thankyou to the Co-op Dividend Fund: We have
just received the sum of £900 which we will be using
to update the contacts information on this website. As LETSlink
UK has no core funding, in order to make the very best of
this grant, we will be treating it as seed-money and asking
all groups to renew their membership subscriptions to support
further development of the work.

Southwest Meeting 5th February 2005
UPSTART leads the way. LETSlink UK representatives Mary Fee
and Woody Bronson joined local LETS activists at a small but
focused meeting organised by Upstart consultancy on behalf
of LETS groups in the South West. After a news round-up from
all those LETS organisers attending, we discussed a number
of important issues including:
CELTS: where next for the regional currency?
Structures and future plans for SW LETS
Developing LETS and Time Banks
Setting up Housing Co-operatives
