Sunday March 25th, 1 to 5pm Manchester LETS trading event at ArcSpace, St Wilfrid’s Enterprise Centre, Hulme.
The event is open to LETS ‘newbies’, and experienced ‘traders’ alike. Whether you are an individual, family, sole trader, or local business, your presence at the Spring Fair will be welcome! It will be a great opportunity to open an account in Manchester LETS if you haven’t already done so, meet other members, and start trading using your very own Manchester Pounds. If you have goods or services to sell, and wish to have a stall at the event, please call Julia on 0161 232 8839 or email email@example.com to find out more about the terms and conditions, and to arrange this. You don’t have to have anything to sell right now to come to this event. You can start trading straight away in LETS – you can spend Manchester Pounds before you have even earned any!! Or just come along to find out about LETS and see what it has to offer you. There will be a fresh fruit and veg stall on the day, selling a range of produce at 50% Manchester Pounds and 50% sterling.
Entrance to the event is £1 sterling, and one Manchester pound. Don’t worry if you haven’t got a LETS account yet, as we will be able to set this up for you on the day. http://ManchesterLETS.Org
