150 years of Chelmsford Star Co-operative Society

150 years ago, Chelmsford Star Co-operative was born, and 2017 is going to be a year of huge celebration.

The society is presenting an exhibition at Chelmsford Museum from June until August, and every week a free basket of shopping is given away to a member – all part of a plan to make 2017 ‘the best year yet to be a member of Chelmsford Star (so far)’.

“As we celebrate our 150th anniversary, the quote by Henry Ford, ‘Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, and working together is success’, comes to mind,” says chief executive Barry Wood.

“I am proud to lead the society as we celebrate our 150th anniversary, and – as the current custodians of co-operation in Chelmsford – lay the foundations for the coming decades for our members.”
