Brixton pounds

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.

    I thought you would like to know that the B£10 in the photo was spent in La Lupa restaurant in Brixton the night before last – it was an excellent meal in a local establishment with handmade pasta and calzone, paid for in local currency!! Most good!! (That B£1 is still in my wallet, waiting to go back into the local economy!)
