Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Burghfield Common, Berkshire

Tesco wants to open a store in the Rising Sun pub.

Campaigners criticised the company in January 2013  for taking more than one year to admit it was even considering transforming the rundown Rising Sun in Burghfield Common.

Residents Neighbours reacted by plastering the pub with "Say no to Tesco" banners and complaining to West Berkshire Council about the shop's impact on road safety and the future of other village businesses.
