A CAMPAIGN has been launched to bring discount supermarket Aldi to Amlwch.

The campaign is being led by Virginia Crosbie, Ynys Môn MP. It was sparked after community members asked the politician to get involved in the call. 

The MP kicked off the drive alongside residents Mandy Jones and cllr Aled Morris just before Easter at the Blueberries Café in the town. A total of 60 residents came along. 

About 150 people have added their names to the call for the supermarket to set up shop but Ms Crosbie is calling for more to get involved and sign up.

“Local people really want to see Aldi come to Amlwch," Ms Crosbie said.

"I have been in touch with the supermarket but we need to show there is widespread support for it so please get in touch and sign up.

“Competition and supermarket choice is good for our island and I think Amlwch would benefit from another store.

“I know the local people I met at Blueberries Café certainly thought so and I will do all I can to make the case to Aldi."

Mandy said: “Within days of me contacting her, Virginia contacted Aldi, met with the local community in Amlwch and has now launched a campaign."

Aldi has stores in Llangefni, Bangor and Holyhead.
