Mike has welcomed a new safety fence that Tesco has installed to protect pedestrians and vehicles, after he intervened on behalf of a constituent.
Yobs destroyed a vehicle belonging to Malcolm Simmonds, proprietor of Specialist Herbal Supplies on Station Road, when they threw a Tesco trolley off the car park roof last year. Mike wrote to the manager of the supermarket on Malcolm’s behalf and received a pledge that a safety fence would be installed. The fence is now in place and Malcolm is delighted.
Commenting, Mike said: “I was really happy that Tesco has been a helpful and responsible neighbour by installing this safety fence. Had someone been hit by the last trolley that was thrown over, they would have died. I know that Malcolm is very happy that he and his staff, as well as his customers, are now much safer.”
