Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Woburn Sands, Milton Keynes

Tesco applied for permission to do some alterations to premises in the High Street. The premises were occupied by a restaurant.

A campaign group "Keep Tesco out of Woburn Sands" was set up. A petition gathered over 3,000 signatories and on 12th March 2012 members of the group handed in the petitions to Tesco Head Office in Cheshunt.

The group held a protest outside the former Zen Restaurant on 23rd June 2012.
