5000 hours celebrated
Members came to Bruce Castle in December to celebrate 5000 hours of skill sharing and timebanking. We began the afternoon with a winter tree ID walk and learnt about opportunities to volunteer in this beautiful park. We then had mulled wine and festive treats in the café area of the museum.

Members lunches continue to be popular— with interesting speakers from Futureproof, Loan Sharks project, cancer awareness, benefit changes, energy saving advice and Credit Union.
If you would like to come along to one of our lunches to share information, or if there is a subject you would like to hear more about, please get in touch.
The next lunches will be held on 7 April, 2 June and 7 July. There is no lunch on 5 May but see below for big lunch plans.
Big Lunch 2014
Following the success of our Big Lunch last year, we are planning an event for mid-May. How about a picnic in Bruce Castle Park or Alexandra Park?—with an alternative if the weather is wet! More details to follow.
The Big Kitty Knit
On Monday 17th March around a dozen of our members got together in Tottenham's Living room to join squares knitted by Jane to make blankets for the cats and kittens of Wood Green Animal Shelter. A great time was had by everyone, so much so that we are planning a follow up session to complete the blankets plus a large activity blanket on Monday 14th April. We will be at TLR (situated next door to 639 Enterprise Centre, High Road, Tottenham) again from 1.30-4.00
