Regular Time Bank activities already running include five-a-side evening football at Orchid Vale School; fortnightly morning craft sessions at North Swindon Library; and a six-weekly evening Book Club at Asda Orbital. Anyone can join the Time Bank and attend the regular or one-off special group events. New members are welcome and it is expected that new groups will be set up across North Swindon to suit people’s needs. “Anyone can join the local Time Bank. Everyone will find they have something to give and can benefit from the friendship of others,” said a group spokesman. l To find out more, contact Lou or Kirsty on 01793 420557 or timebankswindon@gmail.com or find them on facebook at www.facebook.com/#!/timebankswindon.timebankswindon.
