Trading homemade chocolates for computer training or dance lessons: that's Bevis Cotton's vision. In February 2012 the retired English teacher founded the Clonakilty Favour Exchange portal. Every resident of Clonakilty can register and offer his or her services -- whose value is measured in time. Participants can use the 'time' they've earned to purchase services from others. Over 150 citizens are already taking part in the exchange.
