#11 Mums Plan Inspiring 2012 With ‘Licence To Inspire’ With The Creation Station Franchise

The UK’s leading children’s activity franchise, The Creation Station, announced the award of 11 new franchises to mums during the months of September and November 2011. The ‘Licence to Inspire’ children’s imaginations’ enables the 11 women to run their own art and crafts activity franchise within their local community and to start 2012 with their own ready-made inspiring business.

The 11 mums come from across the UK and are launching their Creation Station franchise within their local towns. Helen Silva is from Exeter, Debbie Collins is from Chester, Susan Hammond is from South Bristol, Susan Hicks is from Durham, Erika Doerksen is from Ipswich, Christine Cox is from Solihull, Ann Berry is from North Ipswich, Louise Platt is from Bedfordshire, Naomi Savory is from Southport, Debbie Miodonski is from Chelmsford and Cath Allen is from County Antrim.

Susan Hicks said: “I was looking for an opportunity that would give me flexibility around my family needs, but at the same time provide a good income” states Hicks from Durham. “I came across The Creation Station and both my husband and I felt it ticked all the boxes for us as a family. For me, I love the brand ethos and all the people involved are very supportive and helpful.”

Cath Allen from County Antrim in Northern Ireland was recently made redundant and was looking to run her own business to enable her to have more time with her daughter.

“I’m really excited to be the first to bring The Creation Station to Northern Ireland. I completed my training just three weeks ago and have already delivered a Creation Station Arty Party, which was really good fun, I have another booked for this Saturday too,” stated Allen. “The response to the Little Explorer and Baby Discovery art and craft classes has been really positive. I am starting 2012 with classes planned within the local community centres in Crumlin and Lilburn. I feel I have turned the difficult situation of redundancy around and I am now really looking forward to an inspiring 2012.”
