What is RAMLETS?RAMLETS (aka RamsgateLETS the Ramsgate Local Exchange and Trading System) is a community-based barter system. Members pool their skills and resources to form a local network, which allows them to trade goods and services without using money. Instead of using pounds and pence, RAMLETS has its own 'currency' called 'RAMS'. It was started in 2014 and is one of over 450 similar systems around the country.
Please have a look round the public areas of our site. There is a FAQ under the About the System link. This will describe the LETS concept and also show what can be done via the website once you have joined. If you like what you see then please join up. We have a twitter account @ramsgatelets and a Facebook page ramsgatelets. Please follow and like us to spread the word!
