Around 150 people have turned out in Crickhowell High Street in Powys to oppose plans to convert a pub in the High Street into a convenience store.
Campaigners say that Crickhowell boasts one of the few independent High Streets in Wales, it's one of the towns unique selling points. Crickhowell is already well served by 3 independent convenience stores, two butchers, a bakers, an off licence and a florist, to name a few would suffer loss of business as a result of this application being granted. The whole dynamic of our town would change dramatically.
As part of the campaign shopkeepers in Crickhowell boarded-up their windows on a Saturday afternoon, as they continue their protest against plans for a High Street supermarket.
