The Green Valley Grocer is a cooperative business, owned and controlled by its customers and supporters. You can become a member too.
Our community share offer was launched at a public meeting on Friday May 29 2009. We quickly achieved our initial target, and your support enabled us to to refurbish the shop premises and launch The Green Valley Grocer on July 10 2009, and we haven't looked back since.
The membership offer remains open, as we want to ensure that as many local people and organisations as possible get involved in the ownership of the shop, ensuring that we are tightly knitted into the fabric of life in the Colne Valley for the long term.
If you would like to apply for membership of the cooperative and become a co-owner, please download the simple application form, complete and return it with your cheque, made payable to Slaithwaite Cooperative Limited.
We will process your application and in due course send you your share certificate and a copy of the rules of the cooperative.
Once you are a member you have the right to participate in General Meetings and stand for election to the board of directors. You will also have made an important decision to support and invest in an important local resource.
