Workshop on how to set up new co-ops

THREE local co-operatives will be running a free workshop on worker and housing co-operatives tomorrow (Saturday).

The event takes place from 2pm to 5pm in the Sea View room at the White Rock Hotel.

The workshop, part of Co-operatives Fortnight, will enable people to learn more about co-operatives, what they are, and how they work. The three local co-ops which will be running the event are Trinity Wholefoods and Wave and housing co-operative Walden Pond.

Walden Pond member Emily Johns said: “By setting up housing co-operatives we empower ourselves to take control over one of the most important aspects of our lives: our housing.”
