International Co-operatives Day 2016

It’s the UN’s International Co-operatives Day tomorrow, so let me get my greetings in in good time.

Here, in the town where I live, we will be celebrating tomorrow both the past and present of co-operation. We will be laying some flowers on the graves of two eminent nineteenth century co-operative leaders, both of whom are buried locally. Then we shall be foregathering in the meeting room of a local housing co-op, where the growing number of local co-ops will be sharing news of what they’re up to.  And finally we’ll adjourn for a drink – in our local co-operatively run pub. How’s that for a tempting timetable of events?
