Local Exchange Trading System - We are a group of people who trade our skills/goods for other members skills/goods. We have a pool of resources provided by our membership for the benefit of our membership. We use a local currency (Thistles). Each member has an account and a cheque book to pay for any services. Each member has agreed to keep their accounts within a +/- balance. By using an account system, members only obligation is to the system and not to whoebver they used for a service. There is no cash permitted in trading apart from to cover expenses such as materials. A £5 joining fee is charged, thereafter all system/membership fees are in the local currency.
