In recent months there have been many hours of time and skills swapped in the Derbyshire Dales including gardening, music lessons, the growth of a Time Swap band, DIY, curtain repairs, tip runs, help in the home, craft groups, companionship and much, much more. The community is developing with generous members donating their hours to less able members of the Time Swap scheme, which is amazing.
The dales branch of the scheme is working to increase membership, swap more hours and take part in more group events.
