 Published on: 30th May 2023   |   By: Lizzie Ellis   |   Category: Uncategorized

A new business centre set up by a local mum was opened by Sir Mike Penning, MP for Hemel Hempstead, last month.

Strathallan Business Centre, located on Fernville Lane, opened its doors on Wednesday, May 17. The centre offers a range of services and a unique way of working for local people on the go in the town.

The business was founded by Donna Butchart, a working mum from Hemel Hempstead who has first-hand experience of the challenges faced by business owners and working parents. She set up Strathallan Business Centre with the aim of making everyone’s life easier.

It is described as “a different way of working for people and companies in Hemel Hempstead” and has been created to give entrepreneurs, working parents and business owners in the town access to a range of services.

The business centre offers hot desks, a media centre and presentation suite, services to manage finances, HR services including payroll and contracts, and support with IT, marketing and sales, as well as a concierge team to help with a range of tasks.

Sir Mike MP told HemelNews: “I congratulate Donna and her team on the opening of Strathallan Business Centre.

“Starting a new business is a daunting prospect for anyone, but to have access to a top-rate facility such as this which offers support, mentoring and friendly advice will be a real help. I wish them well and every success for the future.”
