Little Havens re-open Thundersley food store

Little Havens, an essential children’s hospice based in Thundersley, was on hand to help their local co-op re-open with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on 20th September.

Little Havens, which looks after children with life-limiting conditions across Essex, is one of the hundreds of groups that Chelmsford Star Co-operative support through fund-raising, and also the Charity of the Year selected by its employees. Volunteers were on hand during the launch to raise awareness on their work and collect much-needed funds.

Donations made to local children's fun week

The 14th annual Fun Week was held at the Scout Hut in Langton Avenue in Melbourne, run by the community of sisters living in Anderson avenue.

The week was very much appreciated by local families whose children enjoyed a rich variety of activities through the week – from cookery to craft – sport – drama – music – dance.

The hut throbbed to the sounds of laughter and fun for a whole week as the children were held enthralled by a strong group of young helpers who animated the week.

Calendar photography competition

Chelmsford Star Co-op, the community focused Society behind Quadrant department stores and many local co-op food shops are holding a photograph competition.
