Why would the yes group attend the session at Buxton Lane, there is no need to , Asda will do the hard work for the people in support of the supermarket .
The focus group I attended at Bredbury Hall , there was a couple of ladies there who when we first started discussing the supermarket, were very set against it, by the end of the session through talking to other residents of Marple, their view had actually changed drasticly , now that is not from influence from Asda, as at the time we did not know it was an Asda focus group ,it was from having level headed discussions , and listening to other opinions in the group, without the back biting and sniping which is getting very very boring to read on here , has no substance , and quite frankly not fair on the members of the forum who are genuinely interested, worried maybe, and maybe cant attend meetings etc, its not fair on them to have to wade through the rubbish to get some proper facts .
What I will say, is that you are very blinkered if you think the yes group only consists of 3 people, there is more support for it than you think, Im not going to attend a yes meeting, it would be pointless , because if permission goes ahead, Asda are building it, with or without my support.
Marple in Action is well supported , well organised , well publicised and fair play to you on the hard work you do , but in a community of twenty thousand plus people ... I would be more worried about the signatures, support you havent got , you have a good few thousand signatures, but where are all the others ?
