LETS is a Local Exchange Trading System for Dorchester, Weymouth, Portland and Surrounding Villages.
We believe everyone has something to offer in their LETS community. Your skills or neighbourly help could be just what someone else would be glad of. For example: “use of washing machine; window cleaning; mending clothes; tie dyeing; hire of tent; home-grown veg; help with party planning and catering; extra help when you’re ill; computer advice ; dog walking ….” and much more!
We trade using our own local currency called ‘Marts’. You don’t have to earn before you spend, just make sure that your account balances out your debts and credits once a year or so. You also don’t have to trade one-to-one. You could bake a cake for one LETS member, then have your shelves put up by another LETS member, and it won’t cost you a penny.
