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

  • Local Plan and the Bloody Garden Villages
    The CBC Local Plan Committee is becoming increasingly important. It has always been of interest behind the scenes, but y’know: it’s not the most SEXIEST of #localgov mechanisms. Throw on to the agenda Tollgate, the Northern Gateway and the bloody Garden Villages and you can see how the Local Plan is the means in which […]
  • Wonky Colchester
    This piece was first written for a publication that never actually appeared. Hey hoe. Colchester is wonky and I love it. When you approach North Station and see Jumbo standing proud, you then realise that the rest of the town appears as though it has fallen off a ledge. Colchester landscape is wonky. You leave […]
  • Sunny Colch Street Hunt, Photography, Cinema and Tours
    And so the plan was to bash out another hit and miss Arts Centre Ahoy blog post; the autumn schedule for St Mary’s at the Walls has dropped. It’s STUFFED full of ACE events of the usual brilliant, bonkers Arts Centre variety. But then the Arts Centre itself is rather busy online. We can sign […]
  • Carry on Campaigning
    And so the Comrades of Colchester Labour have finally selected a candidate for the Shrub End by-election on 7 September. Great to have community stalwart Mike Dale selected as @UKLabour candidate for #ShrubEnd by-election in #Colchester @ColchesterLab — Adam Fox (@adamdfox) August 8, 2017 Step forward local resident Mike Dale, filling the gap in those […]
  • Shrub End Starting Orders
    Righto – and so the ink has barely dried on the Notice of Election for Shrub End. Is anyone up for this CBC by-election? It would seem so… The vacancy has come about after the resignation of LibDem Cllr Karen Chaplin. Which was… ‘unfortunate.’ Especially so for the Love Me I’m a Liberal Lot. The […]
  • Northern Gateway… again
    The next hurdle for the Northern Gateway should get the green light when CBC Cabinet meets at the Town Hall on 9 August. It’s a long running saga that would have gone to penalties many months ago if this was a football match. The SEXY Colchester Northern Gateway (North) Sports Development Project Review is up […]
  • Warm and Toasty Coast to Coast Comes to Colchester
    The Warm and Toasty Club returned to Colchester Arts Centre on Sunday to deliver a snapshot of the Coast to Coast project. Plus we had a brass band, a Bard and biscuits. NEVER forget the Warm and Toasty biscuits, friends. Warm and Toasty aims to collect and share stories from some of the more senior […]
  • Warm & Toasty Walton Return
    You never know what to expect from a Warm and Toasty Club memory afternoon. A good starting point is in the name: warm, toasty and memories. But beyond the warm friendships and the shared memories, the rest can be a little random. This is what makes Warm and Toasty so special. Johnno and the team […]
  • Wheelie Bin WOW
    Colchester Borough Council has filed a patent for: Transport-Enabled Units of Refuse – WHEELIE BINS to you and me. With the wheelie bin trial across some wards being rolled out in a few months, CBC has started to make preparations. The Chronic has seen a draft document to patent the transport-enabled units of refuse. It […]
  • 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 […]

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.
