Love Your TimeBank Week (Sept 23-30)
The Connecting Mid Canterbury Charitable Trust invites you to join with them in celebrating the first year of their initiatives; the Mid Canterbury TimeBank & Learning Exchange.
Scavenger Hunt Competition
From Sept 23 TimeBank signs will appear on members’ fences and Scavenger Hunt forms will be available to download here or collect from the Ashburton Public Library or Community House. Head to the 13 addresses listed on the form to find the clues needed to complete the TimeBank story. Drop your form in to the Library, Community House or bring them to the Birthday Celebration (Sinclair Centre) on Sunday Sept 30, where the winners will be drawn at 3.30pm. If you’re not up for the Scavenger Hunt you can still be in to win by taking a Silly Selfie in front of one of the clue signs and posting it in the competition thread on our Facebook page.
