A PORTISHEAD mum-of-four, fed up with paying extortionate prices for ice creams at functions has started her own ice cream business.

Heidi Shorney, of Station Road, decided to set up her own business after forking out a huge amount of cash for treats for her children at fetes, fairs and carnivals.

The 41-year-old entrepreneur has purchased an ice cream van and two trikes from which to sell her wares.

"I contacted a Bristol based ice cream company who agreed to supply me," said Heidi.

"It didn't take me long to set up the business and I have already been booked for all sorts of events from weddings to school fairs.

"The nice thing about it is that I don't need to run an engine to serve the ice creams, which creates fumes.

"I operate from a box freezer that will keep the ices at the right temperature for at least six hours without power."

The trikes are ideal for indoor or outdoor events and ice creams are on sale for as little as 40p.

Heidi is also planning to give a percentage of her profits to any charities or community groups which book her.

Heidi decided to use her maiden name to sell the icy treats and has called her business Whytes Ices.
