The Society, registered under the Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies Act, has a Board of non-executive Directors who are elected by share members at the Annual General Meetings. The day to day activity of the organization is delegated by the Directors to a management team who supply a local, reliable source of products and services which provide good value and service to customers and members. Any surplus profits are in part retained for future investment and distributed to members as interest and dividend.
