Tesco Targets Three Supermarket Town

News today in the EDP that Tesco has acquired the underdeveloped land at the EcoTech Business Park, next door to Waitrose, from Breckland Council with plans for a fourth supermarket within Swaffham. The land (A) was earmarked for sale two years ago.

Whether there is enough footfall in the area will be seen, it will enable fans of the big T to shop more locally, shops in Dereham and Kings Lynn are 12 and 16 miles away respectfully, although the newly expanded Watton to the east might have expected to pick up this trade.

Tiny Turbines Twins

The carefully minded & sighted of you who pass the Pickenhams will have noticed some smaller offspring in the vicinity. Two small turbines, not unlike larger versions of the St Andrew's school windmill, have appeared at Dennis' Kings Row Farm on the high ground off Houghton Lane. 
A rather more leisurely, larger bladed turbine is nearer to the airfield eight, nearby to the Matthews' turkey sheds, at the Blackmore's Daleacres farm in South Pickenham.
