Harringay Skillshare

Page history last edited by Hugh 13 years, 5 months ago


The idea of this forum is to allow members of Harringay Online to offer skills or abilities they have to their neighbours and get something in return. It might be something as simple as the ability to walk a dog - pretty useful to a neighbour who may be ill. Or, it may be that you have some trade skills like carpentry or plumbing to offer or some professional capabilities as an accountant, lawyer or whatever.


The idea is that you swap skills - or give them freely. This forum is explicity NOT for people who want to run a small business or sell their services.
