The anti-Tesco march

RESIDENTS marched to the site of a proposed Tesco store in Goring in a bid to prove the location is unsuitable.

About 50 people converged on the former Queen’s Arms in Reading Road, where the retailer wants to open an Express convenience store.

Opponents say the nearby pavements are too narrow and the increase in people walking and driving to the store would put lives at risk.

The protesters set off in two groups, one from Westholme Stores in Wallingford Road and the other from McColl’s in High Street.

They met at the railway bridge at the top of High Street, then continued along Wallingford Road to the former pub.
