How do I become a member?

Just pop along to one of our trading sessions (see the News and Events page for the date of our next session) and speak to one of our helpers. You will be shown how to weigh and measure your goods and asked for a few details to complete your membership. You will be given a card with your membership number and you will need to show your card or quote your membership number at future trading sessions in order to make your purchases. 

What is a co-operative?

A co-operative is an non-profit organisation that is run by members for the benefit of members. Each member takes personal responsibility for sustaining the co-op. Everything involved in the organisation and running of the co-op is done by members. When you become a member you will be asked how you can help. Helpers are required to set up, operate the checkout and pack away on trading days, but you can also help in other ways for example by baking a cake for the cafe or using your specific skills to maintain the website, update accounts etc. You can also participate further by attending our quarterly members' meetings which are held at the Cardinal Wolsey pub in Ipswich.
