9 Apr 2013 — The Co-Op in North Watford
Our next meeting, on 13 April, will be themed upon the co-operative movement and its place in North Watford.
The Co-Operative is known by many and still has a presence in the town. We would like to draw upon that knowledge to document some of the history of this body. Our next meeting is intended to be one where we encourage people to attend and share their knowledge and experiences of the society. Please come along and share the information and memories you have and help us put together a comprehensive picture of the society and its part in the community.
