Ely needs the cinema - the city must progress. Don’t worry, English Heritage, nobody wants to pinch the cathedral
English Heritage moans about everything that takes their fancy – and this time it’s the cinema.
It has a real bee in its bonnet about Ely Cathedral, saying this and that will spoil the view of it.
I can go back to 1950, when I became a resident of Ely. At the time, we had three cinemas open seven days a week – but the high earache of the cathedral tried to stop them from opening on Sundays as they felt people should go to church or the cathedral instead.
We just had a war and Ely was full of ex-service men and women who just wanted to get on with life and progress for the future.
Great changes came to Ely over the years – buildings pulled down, new ones guilt, new larger shops and the one-way system as the population grew.

The population is still growing – so, English Heritage, the cinema is a must as are all the other modern outlets that are planned.
Ely Cathedral will still be there – nobody wants to pinch it.
