Latest events

With lockdown restrictions easing, we’re pleased to be able to once again start scheduling events out in the community. Here’s what we’ve got coming up…

Community

Community

We’re owned by our members – the people using our shops and services – so we’re the very definition of a community business. Our colleagues are all local people, we reinvest our profits back into local neighbourhoods, and we support local charities and community groups throughout the year – and have done for over 150 years.

Members

Membership

If you’re a member of Chelmsford Star, you’re also the part-owner of a multi-million pound business. Congratulations! All members are shareholders and decision-makers, and they receive a share of our profits each year. If you’d like to get more involved in how we operate, there are numerous ways for you to do so.

We would like to thank her for her continued care and support which is very much appreciated during these tough and challenging times.”

Phil, Ingatestone
