Join us in Clapham on Friday 1st December from 10am for a Plunkett Members' Meeting and Open Doors Event hosted by the Clapham Village Store team.

Membership Meeting 10.00 - 12.30 - Clapham Village Hall

This is one of a series of meetings organised for our members across the UK so if you are located in and around Yorkshire or the surrounding area please do join us,

You will meet other members in your region, all bringing their knowledge and expertise from a range of community co-operative models - all are welcome! This is a fantastic opportunity to network within your region and to ask questions and learn from groups just like yours. The event is free of charge to Plunkett members. Non-members are also very welcome to attend at a small fee of £8 per person.

This meeting is open to all community co-operative models to encourage sharing of best practice around a range of key topics. There will also be a hands on workshop, led by Plunkett, which will focus on how to recruit and retain volunteers at your co-operative.

Following the meeting there will be an opportunity to visit Clapham Community Store, a fantastic co-operative that is thriving; you'll see the shop in action and to meet members of the shop committee.

Open Doors Event 12.30 - 2.30 at Clapham Village Store

Communities in the early stages of their idea are invited to join us at this free of charge Rural Community Co-operatives Open Door event. Our Open Door events are exactly that; they are an open door to visit and see firsthand an existing successful community co-operative to be inspired by their story and learn how they did it. They also offer an opportunity for you to talk about your idea with a Plunkett advisor and meet other communities also considering how to start up or save a much need service or facility.

The event is taking place as part of the Rural Community Co-operatives project and is funded by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation. To find out more about the project please visit www.plunkett.co.uk/rural-community-co-operatives.
