South Hub Day @ St David's Neighbourhood Centre
Dec 2 @ 11:00 am – 3:00 pm

Park and enter on Rookwood Avenue. This is a great venue St Davids offers us in return for some favours like some gardening. They give us their indoor hall which has a kitchenette, tv screen & piano, out door area and playground for kids. Good street visibility and easy parking.
A Hub Day like this is primarily for members to meet and greet members in their Area, chat, share a lunch or snack, learn and trade a bit. Feel free to bring anything you want to trade, be it food, services or goods. If you’re selling food, a nice thing to do is offer samples for lunch.
11am – Advisory Body discussion group – Unit Budgetting and Local Pay initiative.
12pm – Shared lunch; social time.
1pm – Trading & Learning. Who we are and what we trade. Q & A Learning more about how to use CES and what LETS is. Help and training on using CES, etc.
2pm -Member Activation Drive results; collating and updating the database. This if for those who were involved in the calling tree; please come along and help make use of all the results. We’ll need to decide what to do with dormant accounts.

Any member can create a Hub event like this and have it advertised in the Events Update email and on the website. This 1st-Sunday-of-the-month event can be replicated by any BrisLETS member by logging into CES and finding your neighbours in the Members Map.
