New Moray LETS (Local Exchange Trading System) is a community group based in Forres, Scotland, which lets members trade goods and services using a simple mutual credit system.
Everyone can get involved and everyone has something to offer. Our members include carers, gardeners, computer experts, labourers, organic farmers, decorators, child-minders, therapists, tutors and many others. We publish a quarterly Directory, hold regular Trade Fairs in Forres Town Hall, and have a lively Facebook page where members trade with each other.
By reducing our reliance on national currency we help retain wealth in our local economy, and we help members become more financially self-reliant.
