Still Here

Sometimes news goes through a thin patch. Especially when there have been no meetings. Hopefully one can be arranged before the xmas season kicks in, and hopefully it will be above the newly expanding Hardy Lane store. The official opening date is Friday 21st November.

One co-operative that is getting good support is the Manchester Film Co-operative with its monthly screenings. Next one is "Blood Car" on Tuesday November 25th...
"In the near future gas prices have reached $40 a gallon. Archie Andrews, an environmentalist school teacher, is trying to discover an alternate fuel source. While experimenting with wheat grass, Archie accidentally stumbles upon a solution. Human Blood".

The picture above which relates to nothing written here is a Manchester & Salford Co-op Commenrative Plate from 1909. The building in the picture used to stand in Ardwick and held the Labour Party Conference of 1901. A whole conference in a room above a store before all the corporate milarky and heavy security got in the way. Thanks to Michael for the irregular supply of interesting pictures.
