"EMMAUS Good-will co-op
When I first heard the words”Good-will-co-op” it felt very exciting, inspiring, it conjured up aspects of co-operation, community, people sharing, socialising together, creating and exchanging ideas, and that of course is exactly what it has turned out to be.
Our fortnightly meetings are well attended. Around 14/15 members gather together to show the various arts and crafts goods that they have made. There is a great atmosphere of good -will and co-operation. All the materials used are recycled from our workshop where we have a huge variety of goods.
I’m so pleased to be part of this new venture by EMMAUS in an unique development. This is not just an arts and crafts shop. its not just a members’ co-operative , its a totally original project that combines these things together to create a great Community adventure. We have 40 plus members, so come and join us. We are hoping to arrange some social events in the near future. We also have talks occasionally on Saturdays.
Hope to see you there!
