Centenary Conference

The Co-op Party held it’s Centenary conference in London on the weekend of 13-15 October 2017.

A packed meeting agreed the annual report. In the awards section Cllr Laura Price won the Tim Pearce award and Kent members David and Doreen Wise were recognised for their service to the Party.
