Co-op archives to be digitalised

By Emily Thornhill Friday 8th August 2014

BARNSLEY British Co-operative Society archives are to be digitalised and displayed thanks to a £43,000 grant.

The money from the Heritage Lottery Fund will go towards a project called 'Service Please!' and those behind it want to collect people's stories and photos of their own Co-op shops.

The Barnsley British Co-operative Society had a shop in every village in the 1900s and many people remember their Co-op divi share number and have fond memories of their trips to and jobs at Co-op shops.

The archive will be catalogued and digitalised, enabling the collections to be accessible to the public for the first time.
