We love it!
What’s TXT2PAY like?
How have your Bristol Pounds been re-spent or where do you plan to re-spend them?
Either treating the wife to a meal, buying some locally produced cakes or simply contributing to my business rates.

I feel a sense of camaraderie with other traders and £B users and I feel a stronger part of the community.
What do you hope will happen as a result of Bristol people and businesses having their own currency?
A true sense of togetherness and independence.
