The community & the countryside
Can you recall a scenario that made you proud to be in business?
Having my own business has meant I can give up working as a carer, having worked in the care sector for 17 years. It was a fantastic moment to take my business to the next level and to be able to take my wages from it.
Do you have a highlight point of being in business?
I love seeing peoples faces when they return to collect their fired pottery, the pottery always looks so good when glazed.
Do you have anything else to add?
I’ve got a small group of like-minded staff who are helping me to build this business, they have helped me introduce sessions like tots time on Friday morning.
