Events - Sunday 12th September:re-discovering Co-op Town!

To mark Heritage Open Days 2021, the Society’s September event invites members and guests to join local historian and guide Keith Fletcher for a leisurely walk that explores the astonishing story of Chesham Co-op, from 1875-1984.

In addition to its Grand Premises and other retail outlets, the Co-op’s various sites within the town included stables, garages, warehouses, a slaughterhouse, offices and a function room for its own cultural and educational activities – and more besides.
Our Co-op really did meet all the needs of Chesham shoppers “from the cradle to the grave”.

We meet outside Café Nero at 3pm and the walk lasts around 45 minutes.  It is free for members; guests are asked to pay £3. Booking is vital as numbers are limited.   

Please email Events  or call 07702 608314 to reserve a place.

We can look forward to a most enjoyable walk!
