The Staples of Life – Sheppey Co-operative Movement 1816 – 2016
Rose Street Cottage of Curiosities is hosting a new Exhibition at the Cottage from 12th to 30th November, celebrating the 200 Year history of the Sheppey Co-operative movement.
Jo Eden said “The history of the Co-op on Sheppey predates the more famous Rochdale Co-operative movement and we are fortunate enough to have a number of interesting artefacts from the Society. We have all the Ledgers from 1904 to 1951 which give an interesting snap shot of life on Sheppey. Come and see if you can find your family name in our Co-op ledgers – or find out who lived in your house during that period.”
“We will be dressing up on 12 November to launch the exhibition and offering Edwardian shopping advice to customers.”
