Anti-Tesco campaigners spruce up Golden Harp pub

Green fingered members of the Furze Platt Action Group (FPAG) picked up their shovels on Tuesday for their latest campaign stunt in Maidenhead.

About 30 FPAG supporters, who oppose plans to convert the former Golden Harp pub into a Tesco store, took part in some 'urban gardening'.

New greenery and flowers were planted around the boundary of the bordered off pub while the surrounding paths were also given a thorough sweep and existing bushes trimmed back.

Chairman of FPAG, Mark Newcombe, said the exercise was designed to bring attention to the fact the owners of the pub were deliberately letting it go to ruin.

"It looks much better then it did before," he added

"We don't want it to turn it into a Skindles eyesore."

Tesco has also lodged three more appeals with Royal Borough over its Golden Harp plans.

Having being rejected by council officials earlier this year they include the installation of a new shop front and four timber bollards.

It joins the list of other appeals already submitted by the supermarket giant.
