Founded in 1812, the Lennoxtown Friendly Victualling Society was one of the earliest co-operative societies in Scotland. It operated for 153 years and was at one point proclaimed the oldest co-op in the world. Janice Miller, East Dunbartonshire Leisure & Culture's Archivist, will tell its story using various resources including the 1960s co-op film 'Tomorrow is Yours'.
Evening meetings of the Society are at 7.30 pm in the Park Centre, 45 Kerr Street, Kirkintilloch, G66 1LF. The annual membership subscription is £10 with an admission fee of £3 per meeting for visitors who are welcome at all of the Society's activities.
