Welcome to the Co-op Blog!

Here you may read about all the wonderful things our users have been getting up to. We also hope the blog will be a place where users talk about a variety of things, whether it be issues affecting them day to day or what they have been watching on TV recently. 

We aim to release a 'Weekly Update' every Friday, which gives a brief summary of the weeks events, as well as occasional blogs from staff and service users about the Parchment experience.
