On Sunday, April 10, the group of children will be attending Romsey Makers' Market in the town centre to sell their products between 10am and 4pm.

Dana Carpano, their group leader, has been teaching them how to become entrepreneurs over the course of 10 weeks, via Zoom, as part of the annual Virgin Make £5 Grow initiative.

Dana said: "The children have been researching ideas, costing them and conducting market research before deciding on an idea to take production. They have worked incredibly hard in their own time to accomplish everything needed to create successful businesses and are younger than you may expect.
