The latest addition to Moreton Hall’s shops was welcomed by the area’s borough and town councillors when it was officially opened by St Edmundsbury Mayor Patrick Chung last Friday.
The new Moreton Kebab and Fish Shop is in a corner unit, opposite the Moreton Hall Social and Youth Clubs, which has been empty since Fishnchickn closed about six months ago.
The new owner, known as Mr Tee, owns five similar shops in Kent villages but said he was attracted to this shop by its location.
“This one will work better because you can interact with the customers – see what they like best,” he said.
Ward borough councillor Terry Clements said: “This is a lot better than it used to be – I’ll be coming once a week.”
Fellow councillor Frank Warby said: “People can come down for a take away and not have to drive too far. It complements the area.”
His wife Patricia, a town councillor, said: “It’s right for round here and with the sort of shops we have here it’s almost a little town on its own.”
