Social Bartering with Favabank...

Favabank Community Bartering Favabank is modernising the age old idea of barter, exchanging items and time as favours between members of your community. Connect with people in your neighbourhood via the exchange of favours.

Bartering Favours Next time you need a helping hand or need to borrow something, why not try to source it from your local community?

Barter and Recycle Your Unwanted Stuff All barter exchanges are tracked using a virtual currency called a 'Fava', to create a 'gift economy' where the more you have given, the more likely that people will want to reciprocate. The Fava is the foundation for 'pay it forward' economics.

  • Comedy, Consorts, Cross Dressing: Arts Centre Spring
    Colchester Arts Centre: Never Knowingly Understood, Always Accidentally Inferred. Right? Sometimes it’s just about the FUN at St Mary at the Walls.

  • 912 Homes Built in Borough Last Year: Forecast to Rise
    Another day, another stats based blog post. It’s all about the HARD data, right? And so on the agenda today is Safe as Houses – or to put it in basic terms: how many homes are being built in the borough? Good question, well put. What you need is the handy Local Plan Committee report […]
  • Recycling Rates Up, Cost Down, Wheelie Bin Win:Win?
    You want WHEELIE BIN stats, right? You’ve come to the right place. Even better, how about attending the SEXY CBC Scrutiny Panel when it next meets at the Town Hall on 12 December? Thought not.

  • Vineyard Gate Back on Agenda at CBC Full Council
    And so you thought that you had heard enough of Vineyard Gate at Full Council? Think again. You may remember how CBC Leader Cllr Paul Smith confirmed at Full Council last month that the AWOL Vineyard plans are dead in the water. To be honest we were a little surprised at the lack of questioning […]
  • Listen to Colchester Overture – an Original Composition
    Identity is everything when it comes to putting your town on the map. Colchester has plenty of uniqueness / oddness – despite attempts in recent years to have a mono culture imposed upon us. Which brings us to the BRILLIANT Colchester Overture. We are not saying that this is odd, but it is definitely unique. […]
  • Mercury New Season: Made in Colch, Passing Pop Stars
    The set paint has just about dried on The Mercury Theatre’s 2017 panto run of Snow White, and whaddya know: news lands on the doormat of The Chronic for when tickets are on sale for the 2018 panto run – 1 March, should anyone want to be first in the queue. So yep, what we […]
  • The Life of Julie Cope Comes Home to Colchester
    And so Grayson Perry comes to Firstsite. Blimey. A few brief words to accompany some hit and miss snaps that we took on Saturday. First things first: The Life of Julie Cope couldn’t be more Colchester focussed if you got Sir Bob of Sunny Colch to pose in the Firstsite front window wearing a Col […]
  • High Street Sunday Schedule Ahead of BIG TURN ON
    Are you ready for the BIG TURN ON of Sunny Colch? We make the same lame joke every year; every year we get a little over-excited about being TURNED ON by Mr or Madam Mayor. And whaddyaknow – 2017 is no exception. This Sunday is the grand occasion when Christmas officially starts in Colchester. Awww. […]
  • Runners and Riders as #BBCQT Comes to Sunny Colch
    And so the Question Time roadshow rolls into the Town Hall this Thursday. Hurrah! We think? Colchester will do itself proud, right?

Listings and Future Versions of Favabank:

Our initial aim is to build a community based around the idea of 'neighbour-to-neighbour' favour exchanges. If user activity reaches sufficient levels we hope to involve organisations and business in the exchange of Favas. For example, a community organisation might want to offer Favas to help attract volunteers to a project, or a business might want to accept Favas as part payment towards their goods and services. If this step is taken in the future, this directory will be used as a resource for users to find further opportunities to get involved with their community or to redeem their Favas.
