Twitter Wizard wanted by the Lewes Pound

Do you know a young person who would like to earn £25 per week helping the Lewes Pound with its Twitter account? If so please pass this on and ask them to get in touch.


The Lewes Pound currently exists very much in the concrete world of paper money and practical purchases of food and drink or films, for instance. However, we would like to have a much bigger digital presence so that we can do more to support the local community and local businesses.

We're offering £25 (split between Sterling and Lewes Pounds) for two hours work per week delivering a strong Twitter presence for the Lewes Pound. This would involve occasionally attending our regular Friday morning meetings, but could mostly be done at times to suit the successful Twitter wizard.

If you know of someone suitable please ask them to email the Lewes Pound with a brief CV and a short account (maximum 250 words) of how they would set about raising our profile on Twitter.

Pesticide Free Lewes 

The campaign to make Lewes District pesticide free has been successfully concluded, with the District Council voting unanimously on May10th to phase out pesticides as much as possible on the land for which they are responsible. They will use a new "FoamStream" technology to kill weeds using hot water and foam made from non-toxic plant oils. The foam acts as a thermal blanket, keeping the 98 degree heat provided by the hot water on the weed long enough to kill it.

If you see a strange machine on Lewes District land, dousing weeds with foam, do not be alarmed since it is completely safe both for you and your pets. In fact, there is no need even for the operatives to use protective gear.

The Pesticide Free Lewes campaign met with enthusiastic support from local councillors, council officers and the council's contractors and is obviously an idea whose time has come!
