Lincoln people

“Lincoln people are a prudent lot” Alan tells me on my visit to the wonderful Lincolnshire Co-operative. It is a prudent coop society, and doing wonderfully well. 175,000 members, investments in community initiatives from the local university and football club to the new Polish restaurant below, an inspiring Chief Executive, Ursula Lidbetter and sister cooperatives locally such as 8,000 pigs in the meat co-operative, stocked locally, reared cooperatively and sold through the local shops.

Prudence with a purpose, the real thing!
