Morrisons please

SIR - I am sure I speak for the silent majority rather than the tiresome, noisy minority when I say I was delighted to hear the rumour that Morrisons may be looking to open a large store in Sidmouth.

We should be thankful that large companies such as Costa Coffee, The Original Factory Shop and Tesco, in recent years, have invested in our town to increase competition and drive down the inflated prices charged by the small independents.

With Sidmouth growing in population and with younger people in the town, we must continue to do our utmost to attract the big names - Morrisons, please come to Sidmouth; you are very welcome to the majority of us.

Mr Jackson
