News and Events
| Bath Local Exchange Trading Scheme began in 1991 as a mutual credit system, enabling members to trade goods and services with each other in a virtual currency called Olivers, and had a boost in 2010 when it featured in a TV documentary and went online - with the support of LETSlink UK.
In 2012 the organisers worked with Transition Bath to launch a major project - with a new website - to print and circulate the currency, but this faded as cash went out of fashion, and the Olivers Company became inactive in 2017. However, when the project website disappeared in 2020, we began receiving enquiries, reinstated the original website, and are consulting existing members about a relaunch.
