I FEEL sorry for people in the Burns Road area of Royston who have lost their convenience store which recently closed down.

We are lucky in Bassingbourn in having an excellent local shop and post office which stocks a wide variety of goods.

The fact is, no one needs to travel to Tesco, thus saving on petrol, pollution and time.

Perhaps Tesco would like to subsidise a new convenience store in Burns Road, since it is in part, no doubt, responsible for its closure. It would then show some of its well-known social responsibility.

The huge expansion of its present store illustrates clearly that shortage of capital is not one of its problems.
