Please allow me to comment on an article, which appeared in your paper last week. As Jools MacLeod is Chairman of the Chamber of Trade it is only to be expected that the opinion of such a person is bound to be biased towards her members.
I am firmly of the opinion that any shop in Sheringham that gives good service at a reasonable price i.e. Icarus Hines the butcher, has absolutely nothing to fear. Also a bit of old fashioned courtesy would perhaps ease the pain of such exorbitant pricing in certain stores!
On the odd occasion when I have had the misfortune to queue in a local store at the height of the season I have overheard such comments as quaint it may be, but I couldnt afford to live here, the prices are too high. Yet the poor, the frail, people with no means of transport to shop elsewhere, have absolutely no alternative other than to grin and bear it is this fair? Is it just? I think not.
If the pricing, and service, in our local stores were vastly to improve
maybe I would be prepared to revise my opinion but whilst shoppers in our Town are being
excessively charged compared with similar shops less than 5 miles away, I say let Tesco
come and then sit back and watch what happens to the prices! An interesting exercise do
you not agree!
We have found to our horror, yet another way in which Tesco are
progressing with their mission to "take over the world"!
The Haunted Weekend Team were joined by special guest "Mr
Magic", Mike Cronin from Cardiff who did a breathtaking hair reading.
International Medium Shirley Cimelli did an evening of Clairvoyance. It was a huge
success with nothing but positive comments flowing during the evening. Look for more
events on their web site or telephone 01263 722391.
