How it works. Join the dance!

The purpose of this group is to provide a local front end to a variety of exchange exchanges for members of OpinioN8.

Do you have a task you need to do, but don't have the skills? Would you exchange skills you do have with a craftsman, tradesman, programmer, designer, odd jobber or whatever in order to get your job done? Do you have an item you no longer want? Do you have a valuable resource you don't use very often - that stands in a corner waitng for the next time you need it? Then use this Group to state your needs / abilities / valuables and find someone, in N8, who wants to swap with you. Given any luck we can even effect three or four way swaps, if person A wants a skill possessed of person C but C does not want A's offering, maybe person B can do person C's job and have his task carried out by person A.

As a first step get yourself a Freeconomy account and record your skills, then put a discussion on here setting out the problem. Then wait for a local solution.

You might also like Haringey Freecycle for giving things away, or Ecomodo for loaning things out.

A quadrille is a form of square dance, during the course of which anyone might dance with all the other possible partners, but returns to the starting point by the time the dance is over.

 

"Will you come and join the dance? 
Will you, won't you, will you,
Won't you, will you join the dance? 
Will you, won't you, will you,
Won't you, won't you join the dance?"

I desperately need the interior of my flat painting - it just needs a complete white wash actually, nothing fancy just white walls (uber chic woodchip) and gloss on the skirting boards.  I could do…Continue
