Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Lillington, Warwickshire

Over 3,000 signatures were collected on a petition opposing the sale of the Walnut Tree pub to Tesco. Pub owner Punch Taverns agreed to sell the land to Tesco who plan to open a Tesco Express store on the site. 

On the 1st April Tesco submitted four separate applications to Warwick District Council for changes to the building.
