Timebanking and Newsome Mill

Newsome Ward Timebanking has helped the Newsome community to protect its Grade II listed mill (threatened by theft, vandalism, arson and neglect) by sharing information, engaging people in the planning process and bringing people together. Timebankers ran a door-to-door survey as part of the ongoing campaign to retain Newsome Mill Ponds and the former mill-workers’ allotments. The resulting research report demonstrated the huge demand for local allotments, helping to win an eleventh hour planning appeal.

This work also gave rise to the Growing Newsome project, through which timebankers are supporting each other and the wider community in growing their own local food.
