A petrol station in Fordham has made it to the finals of this year’s SuperStation awards.
The service station, on Carter Street, Ely, is in the running to win the title of Best Pace Forecourt.
Having established itself as a focal point for Fordham, site manager Vijay, and his family, have made an extensive effort to involve themselves, and the business, in activities in the area.
The site provides the services of both a filling station and convenience store and is also regarded as a meeting point for members of the local community.
The awards, which are hosted by Certas Energy, are open to around 1,200 independent petrol retailers in Britain.
