We have a very simple and not too technical ordering process based around a six week cycle. All goods we purchase for members come from the wholesaler Lembas of Sheffield, itself an ethical cooperative.

You have a choice of coming to our “order gathering” and selecting your items with other members over a convivial cup of Fairtrade tea or coffee (non-dairy milk available!) or, if you’re not able to attend, you can complete the order form which we’ll send you (or you can download below) and email it in to us. Every three months we have a meeting where we discuss the activities of the Coop, plan events, etc.

In between the order gatherings we open up our “shop” so that members can purchase items from the stock that we keep.

All our order gatherings and meetings start at 11:00am and take place at:

The Mutual Aid Centre (formerly The Greenhouse) 
1 Quebec Place
Quebec Street
Bolton BL3 5JW 
(next to the industrial units on Quebec St)
