Anchor Time Vouchers
Launched with the Greenwich Manifesto : May Day 2017
1. Anchor Time Vouchers. Made In Greenwich has launched security-printed ‘Anchors’ ⚓ to promote the local community economy. Time vouchers take timebanks a stage further, and enable you to exchange your time in any way you want, and everyone's time is equal. They are valid for a year, and circulate freely as a currency without any central administration, being exchanged both inside and outside the MAGICK area - the Boroughs of Greenwich & Lewisham, Isle of Dogs, and Tidal Thames. Using time vouchers ⚓ does not affect your tax position, or your receipt of state benefits.
2. Joining. To get hold of your starter time vouchers, you can join at Made In Greenwich 324 Creek Road SE10 9SW, with a special introductory promotion of free coffee or tea. You can join up for as little as £1, for which you receive 1⚓, for £5 you receive 5⚓, and for £10 you receive 10⚓. This covers our administration. It will soon be possible to join online through www.madeingreenwich.co.uk
3. Individuals. You can exchange your time vouchers with anyone you want to, by offering or receiving an hour of services like those on the list of skills & needs. Time vouchers are not be suitable for services such as professional electricians, who give guarantees.
4. Using Anchors in local businesses. You need at least one Anchor to buy artwork and join courses at Made in Greenwich. Upcycled furniture at MIG is 50% time vouchers. Other local businesses are joining in to offer time voucher deals, and we maintain a list of those displaying the ‘⚓’ anchor logo.
5. Keep The Green. You will receive anchors for hours spent on any community activities on the Keep The Green list, both one-off events and regular commitments.
