You may be interested to know about a day of action (a strike, in effect) by a group of SHOPKEEPERS being proposed in Penzance. We (I am one of them) are so fed up with our unitary council in Cornwall imposing increased car parking charges way beyond the inflation rate, while at the same time allowing out-of-town retail developments with free parking, that we intend to close our shops for a day and, shopkeepers and shopworkers in unison, go and picket County Hall. Whether it will have any effect at all I don't know but I predict a fair bit of publicity if we play our cards right. Only independent shops will take part, and I expect a lot won't for fear of ...what? but a good time should be had by all.
