Sainsbury’s protest

Angry Hanchet End residents were hoping to force a public enquiry in their fight to stop Sainsbury’s moving from the centre of Haverhill to a new superstore at their hamlet.

They met to discuss their plans and formed HEAT - Hanchet End Action Team - to take their fight forward.

TOWN TWINNING

A row blew up over suggestions that Haverhill should be twinned with somewhere nearer than the French town of Pont St Espirit.

The suggestion was made in a report to St Edmundsbury Council’s policy and resources committee, which suggested that a more local twinning would be justified.

The report was criticised by Haverhill Twin Towns Association member Dennis Poole, who said it was out of date and described it as ‘irresponsible’ and ‘like a kick in the teeth’.

NEW HOUSING

Three acres of land that had stood derelict in Steeple Bumpstead were about to be developed in a £3m private housing scheme.

The land off Chapel Street, beside Colin Clark’s former petrol pumps, was to be redeveloped by Cala Homes (Cambridge), a Scottish-based company who would be building up to 40 homes.
