Calling all Writtle College Students...

Help Test Our New Student Card!

We’re trialling a new set of benefits for those in full-time education, and we’re asking students at Writtle College to help test it out. We will be attending the Writtle Freshers Fayre on Wednesday 12th September - so why not come along and sign up then?!

We would like to hear about all your experiences using the card; the good, the bad, and the ugly, so we can make sure we’ve ironed out any teething issues before launching it across Essex. Contact details will be supplied with your card....


Co-ops were created after a group of young everyday people revolted against big businesses, insisting shops should be owned by its customers and invest its profits back into its community – not into the bank accounts of the old men running them.

 Their idea worked! Chelmsford Star Co-op is now over 150 years old, but it is still owned by its customers and reinvests a third of everything it makes back into Essex. Staying true to our roots, we are now offering extra support to younger people who use our stores – by providing a way to save up money on exclusive student membership cards. Student members will earn; 

  • 10% back on every spend in green co-op food stores owned by Chelmsford Star Co-op.
  • 1% back in on fashion, furniture and more in Quadrant Department Stores - Chelmsford & Braintree.
  • 1% back on holidays booked in our departments in The Co-operative Travel - Chelmsford & Braintree.
  • You now have a say in how our business is run, and will be invited to all member events.
