Tesco threat to Meads

tesco-0052tesco-0041

There was a great turn out today to oppose the opening of a Tesco in our local village. About a hundred people congregated outside the proposed site as representatives from Tesco arrived for a field visit. Our local MPs Stephen Lloyd and Nigel Waterstone were out in force and of course me representing the Green Party. Tesco are reported to have made a 3 billion pound profit in the last year. Isn’t it time to support the local community shops, the farmers markets, the local butchers? Its time to stop supporting a company that is intent on breaking up communities and takes one in every three of our pounds. I would be interested to hear your thoughts on this and where you shop and why.
