The March edition of Co-op News we look at how technology poses challenges to credit unions, as well as other co-ops. There are also updates from the 6th Ways Forward conference in Manchester, where shadow business secretary Rebecca Long-Bailey shared her vision for a co-operative economy, and a Q&A with Co-operative College vice principal Dr Cilla Ross ahead of the 2018 co-op education and research conference.
As I write this the wind is lashing against the windows while the wind blows a gale, but I’m hopeful that spring is just around the corner. Well, I certainly hope so, as this month English Tourism Week is encouraging us to get out and about and make the most of the attractions on our doorstep. There are hundreds of free tickets up for grabs plus special offers, read the full feature on page 29. We also have an exciting giveaway in collaboration with Visit Norwich and the Maids Head Hotel!
If you’re on the hunt for something to do this Easter, you’ll be spoilt for choice with our pick of events, including spring fairs, egg hunts and family-friendly attractions. Hopefully, we’ll be treated to some glorious spring sunshine too! But if we’re not so lucky, you can always hideaway in one of Norwich’s quirky brunch cafes with a cuppa – we list our top 10 on page 62.
