Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Werrington, Peterborough

620 people signed a petition to protect The Ploughman pub in Staniland Way, Werrington and more than 200 people signed an online petition: www.savetheploughman.com. They wanted Tesco to re-think its plans to bulldoze the pub as part of a £40 million overhaul of the Werrington Centre.

In June 2012 the pub was granted a reprieve when its lease, which had been due to run out in December, was renewed for another three years. Please see an article in the Peterborough Telegraph, 16th June 2012.
