A traditional sweet shop has opened in West Vale.

Lynn Hudson has realised her childhood dream by opening My Little Sweet Shop in Stainland Road.

Lynn, a former manager at Tesco in Buttershaw, said she made the decision to set up her own business after the death of her father last year.

“It made me realise that life is short and I wanted to embrace it,” she said.

“I’ve made the shop as traditional as the law now allows and I’ve got over 70 different jars of sweets, many of them from local suppliers.

“I have done a lot of market research and think some of the most popular sweets are going to be the Yorkshire Mixtures and peardrops,” she said.
