Ruth scoops leading business accolade

A young North-east mother, who runs art and craft classes for toddlers, has landed a leading business accolade.

Ruth Morris, who owns the Creation Station Aberdeen North and Shire, has won the silver award for Franchise of the Year 2015.

The National Creation Station franchise awards were announced at the 13th annual ‘Creation Station Inspiring Imaginations’ conference held recently in Birmingham.

A member of Ruth’s team, Laura Caulder, who teaches sessions at Hoodles Play Barn in Oldmeldrum, was awarded Staff Member of the UK 2015.

Mother-of-two Ruth received the New Franchise of the Year in 2014 and is delighted with her latest success.

She said: “My business has continued to grow in strength and last year alone we inspired more than 5000 local children at our classes, holiday events and arty parties.”

“We are all excited to be launching Create Club, the first Creation Station after-school programme in Scotland, at Pitmedden and Udny Schools this month as well.

“Children and families continue to love what we do and in turn we are excited to be recognised nationally.”

Ruth’s classes are held from Monday-Friday at various North-east venues.

They are: Monday at Mains of Scostown Inn, Bridge of Don at 10.20am, 11.40am and 1pm; Tuesday at Hoodles Play Barn, Oldmeldrum, and Ellon 10.15am, 12.30pm and 1pm; Wednesday in Kintore Church Hall at 10.30am and noon; Thursday at Tesco Community Room, Inverurie, at 10.15am and 11.20am; Friday in Kintore Church Hall at 10.30am and 12.30pm.
