On Wednesday 12th December 2012, ‘This is Dorset’ reported online about the proposed opening of a Tesco store on a 6 acre site currently occupied by The Sherborne Hotel. By the end of that day a twitter campaign had been set up at @nothankstesco which drew the attention of high street visionary Mary Portas. Within 48 hours of the news breaking not only was this website up and running but Mary Portas had visited Sherborne and pledged her support to the campaign. We LOVE Mary Portas!
Hundreds of people are already supporting the campaign online and we are currently organising an online and real-life petition.
