This is a free 6-week course in basic DIY skills and simple home repairs, led by Bob our DIY & Decorating team leader.

Ever wondered how to fix a dripping tap, change a fuse, put up shelves or unblock a sink? This is your chance to find out. Bob will cover topics such as the safe use of tools, fixings and adhesives, decorating, tiling or anything else which members of the course would like to learn. There may be opportunities for practical hands-on practise, including doing simple jobs together at peoples’ homes.

The course will take place on Friday mornings from 10 – 12 at the Time Bank office, starting on Friday 13th June. Please ring us on 442813 to book your place.

Foxhill Festival was a week-long programme of creative events taking place in the Foxhill area in May 2014.

Co-ordinated by Time Bank Plus in conjunction with the local Foxhill community and funded by the Big Lottery, Foxhill Festival was a celebration of all things Foxhill and a week to be remembered.

The programme kicked off with a Party in the Park, attended by over 300 people, and also included art exhibitions, a treasure hunt, local history talks, a family filmshow, music workshops, a pub quiz, local walks, an evening of performance by local musicians and more.

The final music event attracted an audience of over 80 people and was a fitting close to a truly magnificent week. Congratulations and thanks to all who worked so hard to make this happen.

It looks as if the Festival is already stimulating a number of ongoing activities in Foxhill. Watch this space for further details.

We had a great day with our volunteers in Pennyquick park, Twerton, running a showcase   of all the outdoor activities we have on offer through Time Bank. We were joined by Julian House bike repair team, Avon20140405_145337 (2) Wildlife Trust, Curo residents team and Rachel's Bath Community Shop who had a huge amount of young people making lots of Easter crafts!  We also had the various Time bank garden teams who displayed simple windowsill gardening techniques to everyone.

There was some outdoor cooking on a fire wok to help launch the 'Out in Nature' project, circus skills for the whole family and a football game that starts our football coaching sessions for 12-18yrs in Pennyquick park, Newton Road.

The weather was great for an early spring day and lots of people came and joined us for   the afternoon. Thanks to all the volunteers who helped to set up and ran the activities!
