Rochdale Co-operatives Day

Visitors to the Pioneers Museum show off their love of Rochdale.Celebrate Rochdale’s rich and varied co-operative heritage at Rochdale Co-operatives Day, which takes place across Rochdale Pioneers Museum, Touchstones Rochdale and Rochdale Town Hall on Saturday 22 June from 10am-4pm.

Coinciding with the launch of Co-operatives Fortnight in the birthplace of the modern co-operative movement, which this year has the theme of ‘Local, Loved and Trusted’, Rochdale Co-operatives Day will both celebrate co-operative heritage and the ongoing legacy of co-operation in Rochdale. A series of activities, events and stalls for families, co-operators and the general public will enhance awareness of the town’s co-operative heritage, illustrate how working co-operatively is benefiting the town today and show how co-operation is shaping the face of Rochdale for the future, from rugby to housing.

Partners include the Co-operative College, Rochdale Pioneers Museum, The Co-operative Group, Rochdale MBC, Touchstones, Rochdale Boroughwide Housing, Rochdale Co-operative and Social Enterprise Forum, Co-operatives UK, Rochdale Hornets Rugby Football League Club and Unlimited Potential.

The Co-operative College’s annual meeting and open day will take place during the event, and will be open to all, offering participants a chance to see the Rochdale Pioneers Museum, take part in learning activities which highlight some of the College’s work.

Be inspired, have fun, get involved! For more information contact Angela.whitecross@co-op.ac.uk.
