What you are saying on our website

Stroud News and Journal:

2:26pm Wednesday 16th July 2014

ON the £8 million redevelopment planned for the Cornhill in Stroud which includes plans to turn the Market Tavern into a supermarket. Posted by kjag23: Sounds like an M&S. As stated, Waitrose is literally a five minutes walk away. I’d love for it to be another friendly pub - bring back the Pelican days but without all that fighting. Posted by Nimue Brown: I recall there used to be a little theatre space on the back of that pub - we need community spaces and venues for a lively town centre. We really don’t need yet another supermarket. Extending the space for the farmers’ market is not without charm but if this is the price tag... it’s not worth our paying it. Supermarkets do not make for vibrant town centres or a strong local economy. Independent shops do.
