Celebrating 150 Years of Co-operation in Notts

We are delighted to announce a series of events in the next couple of months celebrating: 150 - THE LENTON SESQUICENTENNIAL

The 30th May 1863 saw the opening of the first co-operative society in Nottingham set up on the principles of the Rochdale Pioneers.
We will be celebrating the past, present and future of co-operatives and their members' work, ideas and ideals with a series of events in June and July 2013.
These include a film screening, a historical walk and the publication of an exciting new book, adding new and fascinating facets to the rich and turbulent history of the people of Nottingham.
