Letter: Closure fears –just like Co-op

I read with interest your article in the Pocklington Post 2.3.17 ‘Fears of Store closure effects’ – it could so easily have been about a popular store in Pocklington – the Co-op.

How ironic that it was about a Market Weighton store, especially in light of the fact that it was the casting vote of a Market Weighton councillor that sealed the fate of the Pockington store, thus depriving the town of the very same advantages ascribed to Asda.
