SAINSBURY

Unexpected item in the bagging area? We should be so lucky: Sainsbury’s latest proposal to open a shop in Blackstock Road is as predictable as discounted pumpkins on November 1, and even less fresh.

More than 200 neighbours gathered on Sunday to protest Sainsbury’s fourth attempt to open a shop in Blackstock Road.

Sainsbury’s is making a fourth attempt to move into the old Highbury Vale police station – despite the fact the community and the council do not want it there.

Cycle stands in Finsbury Park have been removed after they were installed in “the wrong place”.

Sainsbury’s has seen its bid to open in the old Highbury Vale police station rejected for a THIRD time.

Many thanks to the Gazette for reporting last week how at the full council meeting Islington Labour tore up Caroline Russell’s motion to promote proportional representation (PR) in local elections, writes Andrew Myer, Islington Green Party.

Sainsbury’s has already angered the Highbury community with plans for a second Blackstock Road branch – now the chain wants to open ANOTHER store half a mile away.

Highbury’s crusade against Sainsbury’s in Blackstock Road will continue on the steps of the town hall tomorrow.

The Shaquan Sammy-Plummer Foundation is named after a young man from Finsbury Park who was fatally stabbed in January 2015, write Ann Devine and Jessica Plummer, of the Shaquan Sammy-Plummer Foundation.

Brazen supermarket giant Sainsbury’s has made yet another bid to open in Blackstock Road, Highbury.

With an exhibition running at Islington Museum until Tuesday, the Gazette finds out how our borough played a part in fighting the oppression of black South Africans.

Aldi’s plans to open in Archway could be thwarted because there are so many shops already selling booze in the area.

Aldi could be set to open a store in Archway later this year after the supermarket applied for an alcohol licence.

With regard to the rejection of the appeal in the planning application for a Sainsbury’s Local in Blackstock Road (“Sainsbury’s sent packing as Blackstock Road store appeal is rejected”, Gazette) we see a small step in the right direction, writes Mike Crowson, Islington Green Party.
