Ideas and Suggestions:

Favabank can be used in many different ways, here's a random suggestion:

Tin of Tomatoes

Tin of Tomatoes

You're in the middle of cooking one of your mouth watering chilli con carne dishes, you're just about to add the tomatoes when you realise that you forgot to pick them up from the shop. If enough of your neighbours are on Favabank, you could post a request for an emergency tin of tomotoes - perhaps covering the cost of the tomatoes and giving them some Fava points in return.

October 2012:

In October, we launched our 'Local Pages' feature to create a space for people to talk about what's happening in their community. When you log in as a user, your default page will now be your local page. Every area in the UK has a local page and we will initially be having a promotional focus in the North Surrey and Berkshire area.

See EGHAM and STAINES-UPON-THAMES for examples of our local pages, or search below for your own postcode district.
