Of cats’ tails and ‘unfoalding’ news................
At Ely Computers they have been breathing new life into their customers’ computers, which either through viruses or other hi tech ‘ailments’ have resulted in malfunctions. The ‘computer doctors’ there have sent their revived patients’ merrily on their way with the minimum of fuss and recuperation. The lovely Michael (who owns Ely Computers), is always so patient and helpful, so if your computer is in need of attention call Ely’s very own Mr Computer Fix-it!
Our esteemed estate agent David Clark told us about a former employee of his who sold her property in Ely to move to Little Downham on the periphery of the city. Not content with the move, her two cats that lived with her (Lenny and Frank; how’s that for anthropomorphism!) took it upon themselves to regularly revisit their old home. So frequent were their sojourns the new owner asked permission to adopt said Lenny and Frank. After much soul searching their old owner agreed this would be the better option, considering Little Downham’s close proximity to Ely’s very own ‘super highway’ the infamous A10 and a possible reduction in the cats‘ 9 lives! We look forward to hearing about Lenny and Frank’s further adventures on Trip Advisor and their forthcoming book signing ‘A Tail of Two Catteries’!
Our friends at Spa ely revisited the archives this week via an old sepia photograph courtesy of Pamela Blakeman depicting the building in 1911 when it was the Curry Cycle Company. It hardly looks very much different from today and shows how Ely has maintained its tradition of standing still yet moving forward at the same time............not an easy feat! In its time 35 Forehill, has been a dairy, a recording studio and Ely conservative Club. Current owner, Caroline Bailey, likens herself to caretaker of this wonderful building, which is now used for relaxing and spoiling its clients in a very unique environment!
And finally, excuse the editorial licence of ‘unfoalding’ news however, how many cities can you think of where a foal is born in the centre of a metropolis? That’s exactly what happened this week though in the paddock behind Ely Cathedral. Mother and foal are thriving well and enjoying the spell of accompanying clement weather in our glorious city of Ely! All of us here at the YourEly office are in agreement that we are so fortunate to live in a city with paddocks, parks and all of these fantastic open spaces!
