If you haven’t come across LETS before, a Local Exchange and Trading System is a modern form of bartering which puts you in a position to trade skills, goods and services with other local people. 

Our group has been in existence since the early 1990s and has around 200 members who exchange skills, goods and services without using cash!  Instead, members buy and sell using “NETS”, our local group’s currency, named after Bridport’s historical net- and rope-making industry.  Each Net is roughly equivalent to £1 Sterling.

Members receive a directory of members’ offers and prices, and when a trade is completed, payment is made via a LETS cheque, processed by our Trading Secretary.  You decide when or if to trade – no pressure.  More details on this under JOIN US

Besides individual trading arrangements, the Core Group arranges regular social events, including special Trading Days, always with scrumptious food, good company and a real sense of community.

It’s easy and cheap to join and certainly helps to make ends meet.
