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.

News From Colchester Chronicle

Here are the latest news feeds from Colchester Chronicle

  • Firstsite Folly
    And so we did the Firstsite thing, dahhhling last Saturday morning, But it’s been a bloody busy week on the work front – time has been a little tight to bash out some random words all about Art. And stuff. What we have here is three exhibitions for the price of none. Let’s get this […]
  • #YoureNotOvaryacting
    Colchester based charity The Robin Cancer Trust has launched a campaign for Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month: #You’re Not Ovaryacting The charity has teamed up with local businesses. The outcome is a social media campaign to encourage females to be aware of the symptoms of Ovarian Cancer. Flaming Gun Tattoo Studio, Racket Video and Joli Studies […]
  • Governance Governing
    Some random thoughts ahead of the CBC Governance and Audit Committee meeting [pdf] taking place tonight at the Town Hall. Let’s overlook yet another political witch hunt. It is to the shame of the Coalition partners that they are wasting precious time in an attempt to frame a Tory Borough Cllr, who is likely to […]
  • On the Make at the Mercury
    The play wot I wrote only went and won. Woh! Not quite. But it could be YOU that picks up the prize as part of the Mercury Theatre’s Playwriting Prize for 2017. Everyone’s favourite medium sized provincial theatre [phew] has partnered up with the University. On offer is the prestigious title of becoming the Mercury’s […]
  • University Hillsborough Seminar
    A brief plug for an open event taking place up on campus at the University on 8 March: Hillsborough: Resisting Injustice, Recovering Truth with Professor Phil Scraton as part of the Criminology Seminar Series. The good Prof works at the Institute of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Queens University. He was a member of the […]
  • Firstsite Future
    Firstsite is currently ‘in-between exhibits.’ Like jobbing actors signing on, it’s that tricky period where you have the glory of the past to reflect upon. There is also something fresh in the future to get all excited about. That next big PAY DAY is around the corner. *possibly* With Gee Vaucher’s quite incredible Introspective now […]
  • Sunny Colch Cultural Traffic
    Cultural Traffic at Firstsite on Saturday looks pretty cool: “A fair for counterculture material, alongside a day of performance, poetry, music and film.” This ties in perfectly with Gee Vaucher’s Introspective anarchic exhibition – the BEST at the Golden Goose since the gallery first opened. The Firstsite foyer will be taken over on Saturday, with […]
  • Big Choice: The Return
    And so CBC has published the runners and riders for the second Colchester Big Choice. Hurrah! You may remember how £200,000 was made available for the first Big Choice. CBC had budgeted to TURN ON the street light of Sunny Colch. ECC didn’t agree. A half decent one off idea then emerged: let’s give the […]
  • Warm & Toasty Club in Clacton
    The Warm and Toasty Club is continuing to entertain, this time over in Clacton. Johnno Casson is spending fortnightly sessions with the ladies of the Clacton Widows Friendship Group. The Memory Afternoons are part of the Essex Coast to Coast project. The idea is to work with some members of our community who have a […]
  • A Cultural Quarter in the Making

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.
