A national social enterprise group that helps mums in business has re launched in Ely.

Jen Pickering said: “We had a fantastic re-launch of the Ely Bizmums meetings.”

She first attended the meeting a year ago as a new mum, thinking about going into business.

She said she wanted to relaunch the meetings: “To help other mums and ladies in similar circumstances as it has helped me so much.

“Due to unexpected family medical issues meaning I had to leave my nursing career, and having just launched my own business ‘Sugar and Nice’ in April this year with the ongoing support from the Bizmums national community, I was keen to get Bizmums back into Ely.

“We had a fantastic turnout and are very excited for the growth of this group.

“We would love to share with people who can benefit from the same support I have.”
