Lewes Pound

LewesThe Lewes Pound is a complementary currency operating in a Sussex town that has the potential to create jobs by boosting the demand for local products and services.

The Lewes Pound means that money spent locally circulates within and benefits the local economy. The voucher system encourages demand for local goods and services, which in turn this builds resilience to the rising costs of energy, transport and food.

In 2009-10, the Lewes Pound had a turnover of £27,000.
