Letter writer CJ Roberts says with the closure of another long-established town centre business, the lifeblood of Harborough town centre is slowly dripping away...
So another long-established shop has closed in the town centre.
I refer of course to the butchers on the corner of Church Street.
For many years run by the Looms family, from Dingley I believe, and latterly by Bates of Brixworth.
Slowly the old lifeblood of the town drips away. I suppose the two oldest remaining businesses are now Monks and Emerson & West both on Northampton Road with Pugh and Son in Adam & Eve Street and Gilberts on High Street.
I’m not counting national companies like the banks, etc.
How sad that progress has reduced a small market town to a copy of every other small town in the country.
