  • Jenny de Villiers


    Nr Loughborough

    Although involved as a family with the Co-op, my true understanding began in 1993 with my roles at the Co-operative College with member education and international programmes with ICA co-operatives. During this time I was also Secretary/Treasurer of Co-operatives East Midlands and then Co-operatives West Midlands, promoting co-operative enterprise. I joined the Group Board in May 2013, elected from my region and stepped down as Chair of the Regional Board. Elected as a Vice Chair of Council in December 2014 and then to Senate in May 2015. Aspiration - to support Council pathway to renew our Co-operative Society.

  • Tanya Noon (Senate member)

    Member & Community Relations Officer

    West Hallam

    I am representing the East Midlands, and have been involved in co-operative democracy for over 30 years. I work for an independent co-operative society and have a great understanding of all stakeholders due to my grassroot community work. I am also Secretary to a Football Supporters’ Trust, represent a number of Fairtrade Towns and a Trustee of my local Village Hall. I have an ability to communicate at all levels and wants to ensure there are channels for members to interact with the Council to enable everyone's voices to be heard. I was appointed to the Senate for one year.

  • Aileen Lucas

    Business Educator

    My background in the Co operative movement includes working in a small Workers’ Co operative, and in a Co operative Development Agency, establishing new co operatives. My career has focussed on business education, latterly with the Open University, but includes time in the private and voluntary sectors also. Locally, I volunteer for environmental and heritage causes. As a Council member, I hope to use all my experience to improve member participation at all levels within the Co operative.

  • Sam Webster

    Councillor - Nottingham City Council


    I'm elected by Co-op Group members in the East Midlands to represent them on the Co-op National Members' Council. It's my job to hold the Co-op Group Board to account on behalf of Co-op members and ensure that co-operative values remain at the heart of the organisation.

    Fairtrade, reducing plastic waste & ensuring that the Co-op has strong community links are key issues for me. I'm a Councillor on Nottingham City Council and a member of the Co-operative Party. I'm also a volunteer, member-elected Director of Nottingham Credit Union.
