Cromer Crab factory bosses are entering a 90 day consultation over plans to shut down the Cromer operation due to the difficult economic climate. Closing Cromer Crab would see 230 local families losing their income and would have a devestating impact on the local economy. It would also be a huge loss to Cromer's heritage as the home of the crabs.
We welcome the decision of Young's to hold a consultation and call on local political and business leaders to work together and find a solution to keep Cromer Crabs in Cromer - where it belongs. We urge people to show their support by signing this petition.
The petition statement is as follows: We the undersigned call on Youngs Food and the Findus company to please keep the Cromer Crab Company in Cromer. We ask them to think of other ways of using the facilities and for restructuring their organisation. We urge them not to break their long and successful link with the town.
Stephen Fry has signed the petition and called the planned move "inconceivable". If you agree please sign.
A full name, e-mail address and a location (your town or village and county) is required to help us present a well documented petition to the company. Your data will be used for no other purpose.
