Animal charity Wood Green has officially cut the ribbon on its new shop in the centre of Ely.

The charity has moved into the former Millets store, in Market Place, from where it will sell a wide variety of items – but also offer rehoming support and advice.

Following the opening ceremony, Sally Stevens, director of income services for the charity, said: “We’re delighted to be opening the doors of our very own store in Ely.

“We’ve always had such a great deal of support from the people within and around this community, so we’re looking forward to welcoming customers and keeping them updated with what’s going on back at our main rehoming centres.”

Ms Stevens insisted that the charity’s high street presence will be more than just a shop for books, clothes and toys – instead it will be a place for the public to ask questions about rehoming and about how they can get further involved with the charity. She said: “We were determined from the moment we started exploring the idea of a presence in Ely that we wanted something beyond a shop. Instead, this is a community resource.

“We will be keeping people updated about the animals currently with us and in need of a home, as well as sharing details of our animal welfare activities and our fundraising plans.”
