**SOS: SAVE OUR SHOPS - Your Village Shops are under threat !!** A New Co-Op Supermarket has been submitted for planning approval on the current Fordhams site in Ixworth. If this gets approved, the future of our village shop, the butchers, and our pubs are in serious doubt. This will lead to the loss of vital community services as well as jobs for local village people. Help us keep our village identity that could be destroyed if a supermarket descends on our village. We already have enough traffic issues on our High Street – we do not want any more! Please show your support by signing a petition and lobbying the local Parish and Borough Councils and help to save our shops !
