10 October 1844

2014 marks the 170th anniversary of the Rochdale Equitable Pioneers Society.  To celebrate this special anniversary the Pioneers 170 blog will guide you through the Pioneers’ first year.

03bThe only item recorded in the minutes for this meeting is that the members decide to hold a General Meeting on Sunday 13th October, at 5.30pm. Apart from the first, unofficial meeting on 11th August, the meetings up until this point have been midweek, after work; it is a notable occurrence for a meeting to be held on a Sunday. Sunday would be a suitable day for a meeting, as members would not be at work.
