Independent traders from across Ely will help showcase the best of their business at a special Independents Day event in July.

The event, taking place on July 3, is part of a national campaign that promotes and celebrates independent businesses across the UK.

It will be the fourth consecutive year that Ely Chamber of Commerce has organised the annual event that raises awareness of independent businesses, many of which are hidden away in Ely’s side streets.

John Bridge, chief executive of Cambridgeshire Chambers of Commerce, said:

“Independents Day offers a unique opportunity to shine the spotlight on independent businesses that are often hidden away or unknown to the local community.

“The annual event is undeniably important for showcasing the vibrancy of distinctive and unique independent businesses within the Ely area.

“By shopping local and sourcing services from independent businesses people can really help boost the local economy.”
