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_ nomillroadtesco.org
