Seven Mums Have Changed Their Working Life Pattern With A Creation Station Franchise

Seven Mums have turned around difficult work situations and have successfully trained to run their own  Creation Station franchise. 

Neela Jackson from  Manchester was recently made redundant and decided she wanted to take control of her own work pattern. Claudia Watt from Milngavie and  Melanie Dawson from Morden decided to change their long work hours and commuting time to gain more family time.

Michelle Hilton from  Warrington, decided  to find a career that she felt passionate about. Marje Harrison from Ormskirk,  Lindsay Rhodes from Nantwich, Roxana Payne from  Stourbridge also wanted a more flexible working pattern around their family.

Jackson stated “When I was made redundant, I decided to turn it into an opportunity  to do something I really wanted to do, to have more time with my daughter and  to ensure that I wasn't a victim of government cuts in the future. I didn’t know a great amount about franchising  and I contacted  Blue Orchid, a business support centre. They put me in touch with Franchising Works, who encouraged me to research lots of franchises” Jackson smiles widely “I had a huge WOW moment when I came across The  Creation Station Franchise, I didn’t realise that this opportunity even existed! I’m passionate about creativity and education and I could see it would work around my family really well. I worked with Franchising Works and The Creation Station, and they helped to secure an interest free loan for my business. I have just completed my training and have classes already booked in. I am so pleased that I turned this situation into the perfect opportunity for me and my family”    

The UK’s leading children’s activity franchise, The Creation Station, is one of the fastest growing family friendly franchise’s in the UK. With a network of over 50 franchise owners, the company inspires children imaginations across the UK with award winning art and craft classes, children’s Arty Party and event entertainment.

 

Sarah Cressall founder of The Creation Station and Mum to three said “I created the business  in 2002 to give me the work life balance I wanted for my family. I continue to delighted when we can provide others with this flexible and rewarding opportunity that is now working for so many people across the U.K” Cressall added  “We are running an additional Discovery event on August 17th in Devon, so that families can come along, experience a class and discover  how the opportunity may work for them.”

Alix at Creation Station provided a wonderful party for our daughter's 7th birthday. Despite the Covid-19 restrictions, which she navigated firmly but without them ever feeling like they dominated the party, the children had the most wonderful time. As a parent, it was a real relief to be able to step back and let someone so experienced, so warm and so friendly, take the children through their activities. Our little girl said it was 'everything she wished for' - you can't ask for more than that!
