Redundancy Gave Helen the Opportunity to Follow Her Business Dream

Former teacher Helen took “the chance of voluntary redundancy” before starting her new business ‘Country Mile Kitchen’.  Working with children with behavioural difficulties to try and prevent them from being excluded from school now seems a world away from her knew life, but Helen has carried over her teaching skills for her unique business.



In her own words she told us that Country Mile Kitchen is a business of two halves; ‘The first is offering baking lessons and the second is a food subscription services’ Customers within a mile of Helen’s home in Rainford can get a weekly subscription of artisan produce such as bread, soup, preserves and chutneys. Which Helen says; ‘I deliver on a vintage bicycle!’, How’s that for unique?

Working with Enterprise Hub Partner The Women’s Organisation Helen turned her idea into reality and hasn’t looked back.
