    I would be available for an orientation session any time except for Thursday evenings.  I live in Rolleston, so a session there would be preferable.

    I had the most divine massage today from Philippa Gibson in Rolleston. Between the warm towels, the relaxed space and Philippa's lovely manner I was delighted to revel in some self care after a busy week sorting stuff and moving furniture to sooth my aching muscles. Revived and relaxed - I couldn't recommend Philippa's service more highly. Definitely will be back. Thank you Philippa! - Anneleise

    What a great session we had on Saturday with Helen Rapp, the Rubbish Whisperer. She gave us an insight into where the use of plastics is impacting on the environment and that every piece of plastic that we discard has the potential to end up in the oceans and affect marine life. Trays used for meat at the supermarket are virtually non-biodegradable and will be in the landfill for centuries. A better option is the biodegradable ones made from potato starch. A good option is to take your own container to the butcher. Indeed your own container for the sushi, Chinese or Indian meal. Off course we try now–a -days to take our cotton bags to the supermarket. We learned that most of the plastic items used in our home can be replaced by biodegradable products. She suggested using wooden products such as toothbrushes, pens, dish-scrubs which are all biodegradable and to use glass instead of plastic containers. Helen had some neat bags that can be used when buying produce instead of tearing a bag off the roll. These are cotton drawstring bags which can be reused again and again. She has not used glad wrap for many years and uses special bees-wax treated paper which is reusable and clings neatly around your left-overs in the fridge. Our aim is now to replace items s they wear out with biodegradable ones. We will actively compost as much as possible. Soft plastics for recycling are being saved and these can be left at the green bin outside the front door of the Lincoln New World.. There is a web site that has the Rubbish Whisperer products available at

    Hi, I just wanted to let fellow timebankers know of an exceptional place to use their credits. I recently had a massage from Thea. It was most devine , and in a very convenient location. She takes more than your muscle tension away. With a soothing touch, yet theraputic if you need a firmer technique, and a caring attitude, and an underdstanding ear, you will come out feeling SO much better in mind body and soul and keen to earn some more credits in order to return. Thank you SO much Thea : )
