Support current businesses before inviting more

Have your say

REGARDING the article “Bye-bye to Sir Halley Field?”

What a brilliant idea! Let’s build more shops, get rid of one of the few areas of green, and put the remaining town centre shops out of business.

I seem to remember being told that Springfields would attract “big name” chains and help the town.

Do we really need another large supermarket or DIY store?

Look around the lovely centre of this market town. Our council should be working to regenerate what we have already and remember the Red Lion Quarter fiasco.

As shoppers we should support those businesses that are left or we will end up with a ghost town.
