    Doors will open at 6:15pm and all meetings will take place 7pm - 8:30pm.

    ☕ Local tea, coffee and food samples will be served.

    To keep everyone safe, we're making some changes to our events in line with Government guidance to ensure they are Covid secure.

    Each individual must book a place in advance whether you're joining us in person or online as spaces are limited. Admittance will not be permitted without pre-booking.

    We'll also be online...

    If you are unable to join us in person, don't worry, as we'll also be holding two online events - broadcast live from our Spalding and Lincoln meetings - where you'll still be able to hear what we've been up to, vote on important issues and ask questions. You will still need to book your place to join us for these online meetings.

    Feedback survey

    If you attended one of our meetings, we'd love to hear your feedback so that we can continue to improve your experience. To take part in the survey please click here.

    The feedback survey will close on Friday 17th December. All entries received before this date will be put in a free prize draw to win a £50 Lincolnshire Co-op gift voucher.

    If you're joining us online for either our Spalding online meeting or our Lincoln online meeting, firstly please ensure you have booked your place in advance.

    On the night you don't need a microphone or a camera on your device to take part in the meeting. However, as the meeting includes voting, if there is more than one member in your household, you'll need 1 device per member to cast individual votes.

    You can still ask our Board of Director's questions - there is a message function which you can use to type in your question and then it will be read out during the Q&A session during the meeting. Further details on this will be explained on the night.

    To sign into the online meetings, please click on the following link to access the meeting -

    You will be asked for your 6 digit membership number (this can be found on your dividend card, key fob or mobile app).

    Followed by a password, which is: lincscoop21

    Access to the meeting will be available from 6:15pm; however, please note that your ability to vote* will not be enabled until the Chair formally declares the poll open. If you have any problems logging in online on the night, please call 07912 554 048.
