On Friday, 14 May we will be joining with fellow co-operators across the UK to celebrate the life and legacy of the founder of the Co-operative movement, Robert Owen, on his 250th birthday.
We have given our support to a special virtual event being held on the 14th by Co-ops & Mutuals Wales, during which school children will be interviewing the Welsh First Minister, Mark Drakeford and there will be a special presentation from Central England Co-op during the event.
The virtual event on Friday 14 May takes place between 2pm and 4pm and it is free to join. You can register for a place here…
