Welcome to Reading LETS
What is LETS?
LETS stands for Local Exchange Trading Scheme. It's a scheme that allows local people to exchange goods and services with one another without using money. It's possible there are about 300 LETS systems in the UK according to LETSlink though as they're all separate grass-roots organisations it's hard to tell, and some still use paper directories and have little on line presence.
This site explains the scheme that operates in Reading. It uses the CES on line trading system and has good links with the next door system in Bracknell.
Our currency is called Readies: As a rough guide, 10 Readies is equivalent to one hour's work.
Everyone's time is equally appreciated.
