Chelmsford Star Co-operative belongs to its members, whilst our members belong to the communities in which we serve.
They should actively participate in the running of the Society, through forums and elections, and support the ethical and co-operative values that underpin our business. In return, they will share in our successes via a share of our profits, and through special member discount events.
A share account can be opened for just £1
