A comic and bookshop in Huntingdon is urging people to shop locally this winter.

Angela Makey, a joint owner of the shop on Huntingdon High Street says it is vital that shops in the area collaborate and work together.  

She said: “Shopping locally is extremely important for small independent businesses like ourselves.  

“We are celebrating our tenth year on the High Street and we have seen quite a big change in that time.

“One of the positives is collaborating with other businesses, so we are one end of the High Street and then the Oxfam Music and Bookshop is down the other end.  

“We have always worked together so whenever we have a campaign or music event we talk to each other.  

“We continue buying books there and providing them with vinyl for customers when we get donations.
