Information: Work Parties


One of the most successful ideas of Falmouth LETS has been work parties. A group of people descend on someone’s house or garden and tackle a job that is easy for a group but hard for an individual. It's a great way for people to get to know their fellow members and earn Palms at the standard rate of 5 per hour. It works even better if the recipient provides food and the whole thing turns into a social occasion.

Currently Falmouth LETS Work Parties are on the third Saturday or Sunday of the month, mostly in Spring and Autumn:

If you would like to have a work party or would like to join one, contact us. We won’t organise it for you (though we may help if you are a new member) but we can suggest members to contact.

Several members have “Help with Work Parties” amongst their offers, check the "Community/Group Activities" category in the Directory. We also suggest you ask other members who are offering the skills you need for your work party.
