Save our Sheringham - Say NO to Tesco

Hadleigh : Tesco or not Tesco, that is the question

Hadleigh in Suffolk is split over plans to built a Tesco supermarket near the town centre.
Those in favour say "Our objectives are to promote the provision of a Tesco on the Brett Works site, in order to provide residents of Hadleigh and surrounding areas with good and easy access to a wide range of quality products at reasonable prices, and eliminate the need to travel to far away supermarkets for food shopping."
Those against say "The answer is simple. We are very fortunate to live in a unique historic town which is a priceless and irreplaceable part of England's heritage. Sometimes it is easy to overlook the fact that we have a responsibility to future generations for our beautiful surroundings, clean air, minimal noise and the ability to buy food and goods from well-run family businesses, where quality is paramount and service is still personal."

Many other issues are raised, from environmental to population growth, but the arguments are always the same, convenience and cheap food now or a sustainable and attractive environment for the future.
