March on Saturday 24th November 2007

There will be a march on Saturday 24th November 2007. This major event will go down Mill Road and outline the extent of opposition to Tesco’s proposals.

Date: Saturday, November 24, 2007
Time: Starts at 12pm
Location: Next to Parkside Pool

Over 4000 people have signed the petition. Over 1000 people have objected in writing to the planning applications. We’ve objected with words, now we’re objecting with action.

Join us on a march to celebrate Mill Road and to show our objection to the threat posed to it by Tesco.

We’ll be marching down Mill Road to the old Wilco site to sound of samba beats. Come and join in the fun!

Also, let us know if you can help us with the event in any way.


CEN article: Anti-Tesco campaigners plan march down Mill Road

CAMPAIGNERS opposed to Tesco’s plans to open a store in a unique Cambridge road have organised a protest march.

Tesco wants to open a convenience store in Mill Road, but it has met fierce opposition from residents who fear it would ruin the character of the street, dominated by independent businesses and local traders.

The No Mill Road Tesco campaigners will march from the Parker’s Piece end of the street to the former Wilco site, which Tesco wants for a new store.

The march takes place on Saturday, November 24, at noon.

A spokesman said: “We hope everyone comes along and joins us in showing how much we want to save Mill Road.”

A meeting to discuss preparations takes place at Mill Road Baptist Church tomorrow at 7pm. If you would like to help email info _at_
