A Local Currency for the Stroud Valleys

I discussed in a recent blog why we need a Stroud pound - see here - now comes the follow up to the meetings with Christian Gelleri last month. There will be another public meeting held by the Lifestyles and Livelihoods Group of Transition Town Stroud. This will be to discuss the developing plan for the local currency for Stroud Valleys to be launched this summer.

Photo: How will local currency look - artists are already discussing ideas and thoughts - maybe not our Mayor on the note? Then again....?

Details: 25th February 2009 at 7.30pm at the Centre for Science and Art in Lansdown, Stroud, opposite the County Library. As they say in the advert: "The local Stroud Valleys currency is an initiative to support and stimulate the local economy by emphasising the availability and quality of locally produced goods and locally owned businesses, thus to help the local community thrive and become more resilient. Our main aim is to reconnect people to their local economy for employment, goods and services."
