Set up in the year 2000, the Gloucester Time Bank is one of the largest and most dynamic time banks in England. We have participants from all over the city, from all walks of life, and it’s this great mix of people that makes our time bank what it is.

Reyaz & Emma, our two timebrokers for the area, organise exchanges between over 300 participants ranging from changing a lightbulb to helping clear up someones garden. Our workshop at Chequers is headed by Jon – participants can come along and learn all about wood working and either help with community projects or make items for their own use. We also have an allotment near St James City Farm where Rachel, the allotment manager, regularly holds events around gardening and the great outdoors.

We like to think there’s something for everyone – everyone has something to offer and anyone can get involved.

If you want to find out more you can come join us on Mondays at our weekly community lunch at Chequers Bridge Community Centre. Food is normally ready about 1.30pm, but cooking and socialising starts at 11am. Our lunch group will be restarting from the 8th of November.
