Soham’s Asda supermarket is now up and running and, to mark its successful opening, we will be outside the store to hand out special discount vouchers.

Keep a look out for the Ely Standard team from 11am today (Thursday) for your chance to get a free voucher entitling you to money off your next copy of the paper.

Asda purchased the former Budgens store from James Graven & Son and were kept busy during June refitting the Clay Street outlet.

The honour of cutting the ribbon on Monday fell to the Rev Tim Alban Jones, of St Andrew’s Church, in Soham.

Other guests who attended included East Cambridgeshire councillor Colin Fordham, Soham Village College’s George Price and Soham resident Robert Barnes, from the Lisa Barnes Memorial Fund, who received a £100 donation.

There was also a bouncy castle and slide for children to enjoy.

Store manager Stuart Calver said: “It’s an exciting time for Soham and this new development will help to boost the attractiveness of the town centre, as well as enabling residents in Soham to do their shopping locally, rather than having to travel to other areas.

“We hope the new Asda Soham can become an important facility for the community to benefit from.”
