New business owners in Guernsey have explained how the coronavirus pandemic pushed them to launch their ideas.
Natalie Robins was struggling to find a job before she decided to set up Les Frens bakery from her home in St Martin.
She offers baked goods on a trolley from her driveway after managing to order all of her equipment online.
“One morning I had five people queuing in the drive at quarter to eight, and I don’t actually put everything out until eight,” she said.
“I think my record was 55 minutes for sausage rolls and an hour and 10 minutes for 98 cupcakes and about 70 sausage rolls.”
She added: “I’m absolutely loving it, I can work from home, I get a real buzz from putting the items on the trolley and people chatting in the driveway. It’s a real community spirit here in St Martin’s.”

I guess it’s about time to shut down this blog, Top Finance Blog. It’s been a nice run of 11 years and initially I had a lot of fun and made some nice money, but those days are gone and it’s time to move on.
