My favourite thing about The Creation Station is the fact it has given me a new and exciting opportunity in life! After being a teacher for 20+ years I was ready for a new challenge and The Creation Station came along at the right time! I love being my own boss, making my own decisions and trying hard to make my business grow. No week is ever the same and that’s so exciting! The future for CS Bury North is very important to us as a family. My partner and I have worked hard to see it grow in a way that works for us. We have invested a huge amount of time and energy into the business and I feel so proud for what we have achieved. My aim has always been to give families the opportunity to make creative memories together...I hope I can continue to do so. That will make me so happy.

I wanted to change my career from corporate banking to have more time with my girls. Now seven years on, I am so glad I took the decision to run my own Creation Station. I’ve been there for my girls for school runs and special school events. At the same time, I’ve grown my business steadily and the support from our Creative hub team has been great. I love being part of my Creation Station family. There’s lots of support, it’s great fun and I’ve made so many friends within my community – I LOVE what I do

I didn’t want to return to my career as a buyer, the hours were long with lots of travelling. I was on Working Mums website and came across The Creation Station… it just jumped out at me! The business has huge scope, positive values and the team are really friendly. Over the past six years I’ve grown my business and the support has been excellent. I’m so pleased I made the step to take control of my working life. Instead of juggling childcare over the holidays I now choose my hours and enjoy having time with my girls. It’s time you can’t get back and for me it’s one of the best decisions I’ve made
