Hi all,


The shortest month of the year, and it's flown by. I didn't get my wish for more snow, but I'll happily accept the glorious weather to finish the month off. I've dug my motorcycle out of hibernation and might just need to make some use of it this week. In the meantime, lots to be getting on with working on the new community platform and preparing to get the next round of calculations under way. 


So, moving on to the nitty gritty of calculating community payback. Current status is listed below, and I'll provide updates as we tick items off.

@alex_w hi thanks for your update Alex, it’s surprising how quickly the months pass, no sooner you pay out than you and your team start working on the next month. It must get harder all the time as new members join us. Your hard work is greatly appreciated so Thankyou.💐🤗
