Good to share

It has been a truly amazing Co-operatives Fortnight, with our theme of sharing wealth and ownership.

I have met some inspiring people – Robert, one of a group sharing their street by creating a new housing co-op; Angela, who responded to a fire on Hastings Pier by getting everyone signed up to buy it for community use; Charlie, the MP who wants to turn his constituency port into a mutual; Sam Roddick who is taking on the cause of Britain’s bees…

I have nothing more to say myself – talked hoarse, and no doubt repeated myself frequently.

We ended up in every newspaper – except, funnily enough, the late News of the World.

Thank you to all the team and all the co-ops and friends involved.

It’s not too late to add into the online Little Book of Sharing – have a look
