East of England Co-op election excitement

Me! On a ballot paper!

Today’s excitement is due to the arrival of the ballot paper for the East of England Co-op election.

Well, it’s exciting for me, because I’m standing for election to become a director on the Co-op board. As are another 30 people, for a grand total of 5 spare places. So let’s just say my chances aren’t that great.

But if you have an East of England Co-op card, and might be willing to vote, that would be fabulous!
You can vote for 5 different candidates, and the election statements, including mine, can all be found on their website. (Clue: I’m listed as Faith Archer, as opposed to Much More with Less…) 

[UPDATE 5 December 2016: afraid all the election statements are no longer on the East of England Co-op website]

If you haven’t had anything by post or email, but would still like to vote, sign up at this link before April 21: Postal vote

I would love the chance to unite my passions for food and retailing, and help the Co-op remain a successful business at the centre of our local community, but we’ll just have to see how it all goes.

For now, it feels really odd every time I nip into the Hadleigh Co-op and see my name on a poster on the noticeboard.

The poster in the Co-op. I’m in there somewhere!

Results will be announced at the East of England Co-op AGM in Wherstead on May 7th.
Hope I have any nails left by then!

    You've reminded me that I need to change my address for my Co-op card!

    and I meant to say " Good Luck" and I hope you get 100s of votes.

      Thank you! So far I'm pretty sure I'll get 4…
