Co-operatives Fortnight 2017

Co-operatives Fortnight is a chance to remind ourselves of the power of co-operation. This year in Somerset we'll be supporting events across the county:
27th June - with Shared Earth Learning, Freco and the Cheese and Grain in Frome
28th June - with Somerset Co-op CLT and Moorvale Credit Union in Taunton
and there's more to come in the week following:
6th July - GO-OP Annual General Meeting in Taunton
7th July - SCS CIC AGM and Social Enterprise Directors gathering in Taunton

It’s a time to co-operate. And after a year of conflict, it's never been needed more. So this year people across the country will be sharing stories of how co-operating, working together, has made a difference. Together we will create a wealth of stories to inspire people to think differently.
Running from 17 June to 1 July 2017, it is organised by Co-operatives UK, sponsored generously by some of the UK’s most successful co-operatives and brought to life by co-ops across the UK.
Why? Because we know that co-operating makes a big difference and it’s time to remind the rest of the UK too.
