NEXT STEPS FOR THE LEWES POUND

1. We will continue to work closely with great local community organisations:

  • The East Sussex Credit Union as they develop their engagement with local businesses, implement the upgrade to their financial systems and continue with their social and charitable objectives.
  • The Rooks and their support of Lewes and local businesses.
  • Lewes District Council and their sustainable tourism initiatives and The South Downs National Park and their sustainable tourism initiatives.

2. We will launch a pilot smartphone payment app together with the East Sussex Credit Union starting in February 2016.

3. We will complete and share the initial feasibility study report end of February 2016 with SDNP and the CED. The initial feasibility study will also be published on the Lewes Pound website and be open for any comments and suggestions you may have.
