August 2010

Exmouth LETS launch

 

AFTER TWO years of hard work, Exmouth LETS (Local Exchange Trading System) is finally up and running. Launched at the beginning of August 2010, the cashless barter system for goods and services now has more than 30 members trading with Exmouth’s local currency, the Cockle.

A wide range of goods and services – from chutney to home-baked bread, simple sewing to computer installation – is already available, and more will be added as new members join the system. There is an annual £5 subscription to cover administration charges, but new members are credited with five Cockles to help them start trading.

 

Exmouth Town Council has helped Exmouth LETS on its way with a £1,000 start-up grant for a sophisticated interactive website that will make it easy for members to trade and manage their accounts. ‘We’re extremely grateful to the Council,’ says Paul Strange, Exmouth LETS press officer. ‘Without the grant we couldn’t have got the project off the ground.’

 

Paul’s own band, the Paul Strange Quartet, got the system off to a rocking start at the Exmouth LETS launch, held at The Famous Old Barrel on 5 August. ‘We were delighted to help out,’ says Paul. ‘Sixteen people signed up to the system on the night, and many others were interested.’

 

‘We were thrilled with the positive response we received, and are very excited about launching the website, which we hope to unveil in a few weeks’ time,’ added Exmouth LETS Chair Delia Pemberton. ‘Tarot Close at Re:solution has come up with a superb design for the site, based on artwork by his wife Claire Close. It has a really seasidey feel, with sand, beach huts – and a cockle, of course!’
