A NEW online sweet shop has been established in Christchurch by an 11-year-old resident.

Sadie Bull launched her online sweet shop, 'Sadies Sweet Treats' on May 4 after conceiving the idea a few weeks before.

Her mother, Emily Bull explained: "We were in the garden playing a game of sweet shops when Sadie said 'wouldn't it be amazing if I had my own shop?'

"I thought the novelty would wear off but she was determined. I love it."

Sadie used all her savings to kickstart her sweet business, starting with seven sweet options which has now progressed to 30 due to the high demand.

Sadie's first customer was her nan who purchased three large bags, but she now has customers all over the county as well as in Gosport.

Emily said: "Sadie has been determined to share her business. A lot of people in Christchurch have been involved. We deliver to Christchurch, Bournemouth and Ringwood and post everywhere. This was meant to be a lockdown project but Sadie wants to keep it going."

Sadie plans to donate some of her profits to a mental health charity in the future.
