I will be writing about the history of my home town Ashington a mining village in Northumberland. I lived there between 1965-1971 and in 1995-2000 and about the stories of the mining communities and the people that lived there before the stories are lost.

smiley - ta very much Loup

I have been having a sci-fest
with Start Trek TNG, Stargate SG1 and Enterprise.

Would not it be wonderful to live in a world where money does not exist as in Star Trek.

That reminds me when I was living in Ashington there was an enviromental project and farm called Earth Balance in Bomarsund in Northumberland. They also had a LETS system as well. They have only been around 4 years but they have made a very big impact to the local community and to the wider community as well.

yep... the LETS are smiley - cool... i was in one when i used to live in london...smiley - smiley

i still got some stuff about them i think but i will have to check if there are any updates... i remember that there was a tax issue somewheresmiley - yikes and of course the DSS kinda frowned upon it because unemployed people were giving some of their free time "working" in them... tho' there was some good legal advice in their handbook if any unemployed member was harrassed by the bureaucrats...smiley - biggrin

there is also a relatively long history behind this system... would definitely be a good and informative [as well as being alternative] entry...smiley - cracker

Yes I would definetly be a very interesting read.

The Earth Balnce community had a special delivery service of their organically grown produce. They had special training projects and courses with the unemployed and other types of groups in the South East Northumberland area where I lived.

It is very similar to the original smiley - cracker idea of the co-operative movement. They had something called a divi and other schemes. They were very popular in the 30's - 40's from what I read in book called the Village Store about the co-operative movement.
