Residents and shop keepers have arranged to meet with local MP Geoffrey Cox next month.

CAMPAIGNERS against a proposed Tesco Express store in Westward Ho! will be meeting with local MP Geoffrey Cox next month.

Last month the Gazette reported the superstore will be submitting a planning application for part of the Sunshine Leisure amusement arcade in Golf Links Road.

But residents have started a ‘Say No to Tesco’ campaign amid fears the store could mean bad news for local traders.

A petition has been circulating around local shops for weeks and posters have been displayed in many windows throughout the village.
