Fenwick Weavers

EDM number 1756 in 2007-08, proposed by Katy Clark on 11/06/2008.
Categorised under the topics of Arts and Manufacturing industries.

That this House notes that the Fenwick Weavers Cooperative Society was founded on 14th March 1761 in Ayrshire to promote and maintain high standards in the craft of weaving; further notes that the Society existed for over a hundred years before dissolving in 1873; pays tribute to the founders of the cooperative who organised and cooperated with each other for their mutual benefit rather than relying on the patronage of local landowners and aristocracy; believes that the values and ethos of the Fenwick cooperators are as valid as ever today; and congratulates those involved in moves to restart the Fenwick Weavers Cooperative Society.

This motion has been signed by a total of 45 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
