A new independent food and drink shop has opened its doors in Cross Keys Mews, in St Neots.

The bottle emporium, called Shume, will sell a selection of artisan drinks and food items from the outlet, which is based in the centre of the town, just off the High Street.

There will be a range of beers, several and also different types of coffee. This will be sold alongside unique cheeses and other items.

Shumë (pronounced Shum) comes from the Albanian expression for more/lots of choice and is the brainchild of owner Luan Saraqi.

Mr Saraqi said: “A central town centre position was important to me.
