We meet once a month, from 6.45pm share some food (free Veggies buffet provided) and chat. Then at 7.30 we get together in a circle and introduce ourselves with an emphasis on being positive together.
People are invited to think about what they need and what they might have to offer. All kinds of things have been asked for: baby clothes, help with finding a tradesperson, advice on sorting out benefits, someone to talk to, help cleaning out a shed etc. The need is spoken with no expectation of it being fulfilled. People in the circle respond if they feel it. Then people go around again and make offers, something they would like to share with no expectation of it being accepted.
Again, a wide range of things have been offered: guitar lessons, help with getting funding, loan of a minibus etc, etc. All the requests and connections are beautifully drawn up. Afterwards, people check in with those who responded to the gifts/needs/wishes to make arrangements.
