New charity shop could open in Haverhill
An animals charity could become the new occupant of a shop that has stood empty and unused for many months in Haverhill High Street.
Wood Green, which is based in Godmanchester, is in talks to take over the premises that was most recently occupied by Cherrytree Butchers, next to the British Heart Foundation shop.
A spokeswoman for the charity, said: “At the moment we can’t say for definite we will be opening that shop but we are in negotiations to purchase it.
“We expect to hear more next week or the week after that, so at the start of the New Year.
“We have to wait on the results of various surveys and the legal side of things before we can say anything further.”
Wood Green is one of the UK’s leading animal welfare organisations and takes in animals of all shapes and sizes.
As well as cats and dogs it finds new homes for thousands of chickens, rabbits, mice, guinea pigs, goats, sheep, ferrets and more.
It currently has five shops. In Godmanchester, Sandy, St Neots, St Ives and Spalding.
