I read an artivle some week ago, about a project who was popping up around angland (and apperently came in some form from america) and was about uniting communitys with they called a "time bank" (i think) It seemed like a very sweet idea, they had talked to old ladies who before were bored pensionars, who had spent their days looking out of the windows at the neighbor boys and thought they all were burgulars who would steal the old ladies purses as soon as they get up, and as a result of the time bank they had started communication with the boys and they ended up helping the old ladies, driving them to the shops etc, in return for home made meals and stories. And there was some other stories like that. Does anyone recognise what i'm talking about? Is it well known there in England? And does it work?
