Popular Soham pub The Cherry Tree has unveiled plans to expand its restaurant area.

Brewer Greene King has submitted an application to East Cambridgeshire District Council to extend the Fordham Road pub’s dining area by more than 50square metres, adding a single storey extension to the building.

Architects acting for Greene King, BGW Design, told the council: “The applicant intends to provide a suitably sized and designed extension to be in-keeping with the existing building as well as offering improved dining facilities for customers.

“The main entrances will remain and we propose to create a new entrance and exit to the rear of the building which will lead onto a new patio area with timber pergola.”

The pub currently employs 10 full-time and five part-time staff but the extension will not create any additional jobs.

A decision on the plans is expected within the next eight weeks. To view the plans, or to have a say, visit www.eastcambs.gov.uk

Yet again we read of another bad accident on the A1101. I have only lived in the area since March this year and I regularly use this road. I love living here but the one thing I soon realised was the appalling standard of driving around here particularly on this road.

The City of Ely Council would like to thank the following businesses on Lancaster Business Park who donated prizes for the City of Ely Council’s Christmas Lights tombola stall: Eazipay, Advanced Aircraft Training, Direct Fruit Ltd, Tree Tops, Endless Creations, Team Sprayers, Jaguatek, Independence, Witchford Lighting Centre and Stock Shop.

I have never liked pantomimes very much, but have now changed my mind.

I so agree with Andrew Moore and have tried to raise the issue of Christmas lights with other councils.
