  • If the Star wont allow comment at the bottom of the appropriate news story, then we have to do this!! Why did the council allow the store to open there in the first place - was there a financial short term gain I wonder?!!

  • Moving b&m to the town centre will destroy them. I bet the councillors would not do it if they had a business. No comments available next door.
