    In the past, a number of BTT members have expressed concerns about how the Co-operative shop in Buckfastleigh is being run.

    It is coming up to the time of year when you can have your say in how they do business. According to the Co-operative, there are four ways for you to get involved.

    1. Go along to the Members’ Meeting at the Tacchi-Morris Arts Centre, Taunton on 14th May at 11am. This is your chance to join other members to find out more about the Co-operative business and to have your say on issues that are important to you. Book your place online, by phone or email (see below).
    2. If you can’t make the Members’ Meeting you can visit the membership website and see the online members meeting from the comfort of your own home.
    3. If you would like to be even more involved you could consider standing for election to one of our local committees. They meet monthly and discuss the business performance, support local communities and help the Co-operative to achieve their social goals. Nominations open on 1st April and stay open until 16th May 2011. For further details then visit this page. If you do want to stand for election then go to this page.
    4. Whether or not you want to stand for election it’s really important that you use your vote to decide who represents members in your area. Look out for your voting pack coming to you from 4th July. The ballot will close on 5th August.

    If you want to find out more about how you can make your voice heard in your Co-operative, visit their website, call the Co-operative on 01884 266892 or email them at membership.sw@co-operative.coop.
