TWO mothers from Great Paxton have joined the growing ranks of successful "mumpreneurs" with their business selling wood-burning stoves.

Ursula Van Leeuwen-Hill and Zo� Masterson have been juggling bringing up six kids with running a business from home since they set up Uztrading at the end of last year. Despite the constant demands on them, the two women have made the most of their circumstances, agreeing business deals in the park and using mobile technology to keep abreast of business while doing the school run.

The business has benefited from strong internet sales of the discounted multi-fuel stoves. The most popular model has proved the Elvedon 6.5kw model, which answers the twin demands.

Zo� said: "It requires only a small amount of fuel, and has a cute little shelf which is great for foil-wrapped jacket spuds. Typical - thinking about feeding the kids as we make our dough."
