Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Keep Tesco out of Woburn Sands

Tesco are applying for permission to do some alterations to premises in the High Street, Woburn Sands, Milton Keynes. The premises were recently occupied by a restaurant and before that a cycle shop and earlier an electrical store.

A campaign group "Keep Tesco out of Woburn Sands" has been set up. A petition gathered over 3,000 signatories and on 12th March 2012 members of the group handed in the petitions to Tesco Head Office in Cheshunt. The group held a protest outside the former Zen Restaurant on 23rd June 2012.
