  • What is THANET LETS?

    THANET LETS (aka The Thanet Local Exchange 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, THANET LETS has its own 'currency' called 'RAMS'. It was started in 2016 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 share a twitter account @ramsgatelets and a Facebook page ramsgatelets with RAMLETS. Please follow and like us to spread the word!

    If you are already a THANET LETS member, please login and you will be able to access the full directory, as well as find other members, change your password and notices, and access useful downloads. Don't forget to look at the Noticeboard! Short term offers and notices are put there and you might get the bargain of a lifetime.
