Just had to put pen to paper after reading the on-going saga of Tesco's possible move in Honiton. Has anyone actually done a survey for the positive side if they moved? I can understand why it seems the majority are objecting to the moves. They are the residents of Ottery Moor Lane area, May I say 'Yes'. They are living in an industrial area of the town! It was not that long ago Express Dairies were in full production. Did anyone complain? If you live or purchase in a street that ends with an industrial site, you're going to get heavy vehicle movements. I think Tesco's did offer to help with this possible problem. Personally, come on Tesco, let's bring the town on. I am sure it will bring more people from the surrounding towns and villages into Honiton. Lastly, the argument the protesters have of the new Tesco being a threat to the smaller shopowners of Honiton. Is it? I did not think Tesco was moving into the antiques trade! That's where our shops are going. If Tesco has a bigger store, I am sure more visitors will visit our town. So let's have a vote for the move. Rob Waldron Resident of Honiton since 1969 By email
