The celebrations start at Future Coops Conference

We are delighted to be celebrating our 50th birthday this year and we are kicking the celebrations off in style with a drinks reception at Co-operative Futures annual conference

A lot has changed in the 50 years since we made our first loan in 1973 but the need for co-operative working and solutions rooted in community has not. Future Co-ops theme this year is from Crisis to Co-op and the conference will explore ways that co-ops can work with other organisations to help support people through the cost of living crisis.

We’re delighted to be hosting a drinks reception there on the evening of Friday 10th. We’ll be unveiling a timeline charting our fifty years so far, and the ups and downs we and society have faced along the way. Do you have memories or memorabilia from our fifty years so far – will you be there? We would LOVE to hear from you and see anything you have from our past. We’re pretty sure we’re missing a trophy or two so if they are gathering dust at your place, do bring them along!


Celebrate our 50th birthday with your memories!
