Speaking At

It's all network - everyone is in each others Co-operative and Labour group. The South Manchester Co-op Member's Group is a thriving little voluntary organisation holding regular meetings at the Hardy Lane, Co-op Rooms. Their next meeting is Wednesday 21st March at 1930h. Their planned speaker has had to cancel, and Angela Downing who is Secretary collared me at last night's Merger Meeting as a replacement. So you've got a talk about "Unicorn Co-operative Grocery" instead - life in a workers' co-op plus the usual digression into food issues that face the UK. It'll be good, as long as I can remember the answers. I gave a similar talk to Trafford Co-op Party about a year ago, and that was so successful that they all turned up at the store a couple of weeks later for a guided tour.

Further meetings are trips to Toad Lane, Rochdale on Saturday 14th April by train and minibus, and a coach trip to some places in North Wales on Sunday 24th June. Something is going on in May but the note I've got is a bit cryptic it just mentions an application for a postal vote?
