It was a moment to treasure for burger entrepreneur Charlie Day as he opened his new café/take away in Wisbech today (Saturday).
He has been promising to open for some time and came close in September – but his landlord pulled the plug on his business on the eve of opening.
But Charlie decided to fight on and backed by a massive fan club on social media, opted to take away over the former Bygones café in Little Church Street.
That cafe has moved to bigger premises down the road but that did not prevent Bygones owner and town councillor Andy Maul from wishing Charlie good fortune.
In fact, both are friends and it was Cllr Maul who was on hand today to formally open Charlie’s business, that will, of course, operate as a take away and home delivery venture until lockdown ends.

Charlies’s is already proving popular with the phone ringing constantly with take away or delivery orders.
