Oh happy days! We have a Tesco store in Baldock so we have nothing to complain about!

Fortunately some of us in Baldock have a wider outlook on life and realise that our town centre (which is not Tesco) needs a bit of TLC to keep its character and to prosper. We have a market which is suffering, whether it is our wonderful supermarket which is having an effect or poor management, these are the things which can now be addressed. We have a wonderful town hall which is in use but needs attention and parking in the town centre is causing problems.

We are not complaining but we are asking for help to keep Baldock alive. We have great shops in the town, they may be few but the majority of them are of much higher quality and better value for money than any supermarket.

Next time you park in our wonderful supermarket's car park, try walking in to our town and see what you think and hopefully you will realise there's more to Baldock than Tesco!
