We need 1,600 member-owners to sign the petition to hold a Special Membership Meeting, where we will remove board members, elect new board members, and vote on proposals to Take Back the Co-op.

If you are not yet a member-owner, please sign up at the customer service counter of your local store. Then sign the petition using your membership number. There has never been a better time to become a member-owner and make your voice heard!

3. Save the Co-op Garage, Melton Mowbray

The Co-op garage in Kings Road, Melton Mowbray is set to shut on Friday 12th March 2010 after the Midlands Co-Operative decided it could not keep it open, as reported in the Melton Times on Thursday 4th March 2010 (http://www.meltontimes.co.uk/news/Coop-shuts-popular-garage.6121503.jp).

The staff of the garage would like to continue trading on the site but if the Midlands Co-Operative close the site rather than transferring ownership as a going concern, they may not be able to obtain the appropriate VOSA approval to continue.

Many people I have spoken to are extremely disappointed by this very late breaking news and this petition is for people to show their support for the staff of the garage and encourage the Midlands Co-Operative to make all attempts to allow the garage to continue trading. I have been a loyal customer of the site since I moved to Melton 9 years ago and would be very sad to see the closure of the most reliable and trustworthy garage I have ever had the pleasure of using.

Thank you for your support.

4. Allow backyard chickens in Henderson, KY

Henderson, KY is forcing an elderly woman on a fixed income to get rid of her pet chickens. The city council states that chickens can not be owned in the city limits unless you have more than 5 acres! There is no reason residents should not be allowed to keep some on there property.
