Protest against stadium scheme.
A group of people turned out on a drizzly Bank Holiday Monday lunchtime on the field at Rock Road, Rhosymedre near Wrexham to make their point.
Demonstration organisers had invited objectors to a two-hour protest at the plans to build a new stadium for Newi Cefn Druids and a Tesco on the land there.
Rhosymedre Village Green Action group spokeswoman Jackie Palmer said: "We are not against the stadium or the Tesco development - just the locations where they are proposed to be built, a village green." She added: "It is a lovely location for people to enjoy and it also has historic importance as this is where they quarried the stone for the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct." Newi Cefn Druids want a new, 5,000-capacity stadium at the site in Rhosymedre.
It is part of a development which will be built on the Plas Kynnaston site where the Druids currently play.
It is believed that the 25,000-sq foot Tesco store would create 140 jobs..
