MY husband and I are both approaching our eighties, and we have been together for many blissful years, I was born in Whittlesey, and we have lived here all our married life.

Sitting in my daughter's house, reading the paper, I see on the front page an article of Tesco plans for town centre store and I was brought to tears, so I have asked my grandson to send this letter to the Cambs Time for me.

I walk every Sunday to the cemetery to put a small bunch of flowers on my late mother's grave, and walking along the leafy road, with the church bells ringing, adds a reassuring sense of peace.

I have been shown a plan of the intended Tesco development, but I can clearly see that the deliveries are going to be opposite the cemetery gates, I can't even bring myself to imagine my morning visit to the Cemetery, passing the Tesco delivery entrance, seeing cardboard box waste, and metal skips, noise, and workers, I think the respect for the dead is attempting to be replaced by greed.

My mother God bless her, lost her life many years ago to breast cancer, and I know what she suffered, she was a fighter, but her quality of life was the uncertainty of a future, she was always planning, and hoping, she desperately wanted to see her grandchildren grow.

When I read the article about this poor lady living in the bungalow on Cemetery Road, and her fight with this horrible disease, and to see that Tesco are planning to reverse HVG lorries almost on to her garden fence is in my opinion appalling.

Greed, Money, and Power has replaced Generosity, and Love thy Neighbour.
