London-wide LETS, is supporting the development of local branches all over London. These do not need to be constituted separately, basically they just need to organise socials to support members locally. Welcoming fellow members into your home is the ideal way - or if you know a good cafe with wifi, this can work too. Just let us know.
It's been a big job getting this site going, and we invite input from members in creating an Offers and Wants Directory. This page provides a space to advertise our own events. Our new forum site will hopefully enable member groups to add their own posts: www.letslink.org/forum. Meanwhile, we aim to keep updated the Events Page on the website LETSlink UK for significant national events and LETSlink London's own Events Page, where local LETS groups in London can have their socials listed, so do check them from time to time.
The Festival of Life at Conway Hall and Red Lion Square on Saturday 29th September was a big success - a good vibe throughout the day and evening, with almost 1000 links being transacted between members of the delivery team and stall-holders, mostly selling raw & vegan food. If you want to have details of the next event sent to you, fill in the enquiry form on the site: www.festivaloflife.net.
