There had been a Wimpy in Queen Street, Haverhill, for decades until it closed in May, 2017.

The same family had held the Wimpy franchise for about 30 years but decided to sell the business.

The new owner of the property then had other plans, said a spokesman for Wimpy at the time, meaning that the brand was then lost to the town.
