A DECISION about restarting Royston Timebank will be made later this summer.

Following a meeting, attended by 15 former Timebank volunteers and Ann Knapp, North Herts Voluntary Services' funding adviser, a small committee was formed to investigate the cost of resurrecting the popular charity.

A spokesman for the group praised the "enthusiasm of the ex-members" and their "desire to continue Timebank activities".

He said: "The committee will report back in September, when hopefully a decision can be made on the future of the Timebank."

The Timebank saw people offer their time to provide a service, such as gardening or decorating, to other members, and get someone else's time in return. It was closed earlier this year after it's funding sources were cut.

Anyone who wants to get involved should contact Elizabeth Chapman on 01763 244325.
