My lovely friends came to visit this weekend and it was wonderful to see them! Four of them live in Brixton, London and told me about the Brixton Pound. I was amazed! They are actually making money to keep it circulated in the local area. I find it hard enough to visualise the monetary system as it is, but when you add Brixton making it’s own currency, it blows my head off. There is quite a mixed opinion about it according to the BBC Website article. I’m totally unsure what I think as yet. I’ve got a bit of digesting to do. One thing is for sure, I really like the design. This is the official Brixton Pound website which tells you more about the reasoning behind it.
