Time Exchange News

TIME EXCHANGE NEXT STEPS

Great news! The Time Exchange is re-opening and offering 1-1 member appointments. We can help with requests that can’t be carried out over the phone or electronically.

NEW TIME EXCHANGE OFFICE OPENING HOURS

Monday – Friday 10am – 1pm

Member Appointments 10am – 12pm

We will be limiting the number of daily appointments so please book in advance. Appointments will be for up to 45 minutes, 1 person per appointment. We will be asking ALL members to wear a mask/face covering in the office. There will be new safety measures in place such as signs, perspex screens and hand sanitiser, which MUST be used when entering the building.

If you would prefer to meet outdoors, we can arrange either a doorstep/yard or garden visit.
