Co-op seeks artefacts to display

Co-operative group celebrates its work with regional display

AN exhibition that will celebrate the Co-operative’s work in the region is calling for items to be loaned for display.

The Co-operative group, which has a High Street store in Sidmouth, will display the artefacts in Bath, from April to October next year, as part of the United Nations International Year of Cooperatives.

Gareth Dempster, membership officer for The Co-operative in the South and West, said: “We’re confident there must be all sorts of interesting bits and pieces out there that would provide a fascinating insight into how the co-operative movement has manifested itself in the region.”
