I WRITE regarding what was the Heron Foods shop being taken away from Stonebow for quite an alteration.

Many people, including myself, miss the shop immensely. At the time of writing a shop, namely Londons late newsagents, is empty in the Heworth area.

It is a corner site on Mill Lane and East Parade, and the shop unfortunately closed down because of people buying online.

It was a very sad day when it closed. It is now for sale with Blacks.

I keep hearing Heron are going up in the Burton Lane area, but I don’t think anything has appeared yet and the area does have two supermarkets already.

I for one hope the Heworth area can be considered.

The shop is greatly missed.
