90th Anniversary Dinner

Just to give a flavour of the 90th Anniversary Dinner, held in Prestwich on Friday. So why Prestwich? It was the constituency where the first Co-operative Party candidate stood in January 1918 (yes I know that makes it 89 years) but we're not doing it all again next year. Alan Brett, Secretary of Manchester Area and our own Paul Murphy, Chair of Manchester Area did the intros. Alun Michael MP was the guest speaker after the food. Finished with the raffle - everybody expects a raffle as long as it doesn't drag on. It didn't.

Picture is of some of the Withington Branch contingent. You can spot our PPC Lucy Powell behind Paul who is seated, Cllr. Andrew Fender (Labour/Co-op Old Moat) is to the right. Plenty of other snaps on Facebook - in Northern Co-operative Party Group. Also at
