Latest from the Crystal Palace Chamber of Commerce. Would be interested to hear what people think about this. The Brixton Pound which was a Transition Town initiative seems to be doing pretty well. Members of the public are being encouraged to attend but must register first.

Dear Members and Associates

Members Monthly Meeting December 4th
Money Talks – A local currency for Crystal Palace? How this can be achieved.
The next Members’ meeting is on the 4th of December at the Phoenix centre and is going to be a not-to-miss event.

We are going to be discussing the possibility of Crystal Palace having its own currency – the Palace Crystal – along the lines of similar schemes in Brixton and Bath (the Brixton Pound and the Bath Pound)
Guiding is through the world of alternative currencies is Leander Bindewald , Researcher and Project Manager, Complementary Currencies, at NEF, the New Economic Forum. Leander is involved with Community Currencies in Action  (www.ccia.eu), an EU Interreg IVb co-funded collaboration project across the North West of Europe.

You can read more on this on the NEF blog:http://www.neweconom...nity-currencies
We need to thank Karl of the Crystal Palace Subway Group who was instrumental in facilitating this event.

More good news Stan has come out of retirement for  catering at Chamber events  just for this special evening, so there will be tea, coffee and sandwiches available.
This  promises to be a packed event and we will be leafleting restaurants and traders in the triangle and beyond to publicise this event. This a fantastic opportunity to raise Crystal Palace’s profile and for our trading community to do something exceptional in a challenging economy.
Guests are welcome to attend but are requested to email the chamber in advance so we can add their name to the attendance list.
