27 January 1845

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.

08b1 This is a Special General Meeting, called because of the loss of William Williams. It is decided that John Whitehead will be a director in his place. It is also decided that John Whitehead will be collector for Castleton, because this was another of William Williams’s roles.
