Frankie started out collecting sea glass, shells and driftwood on beaches across the world, and for over twenty years she has enjoyed making jewelry from her finds. Recently she has branched out into making brooches and necklaces from wool, shells, beads and sparkles in bright colours. She uses driftwood to create scenes and mobiles. Frankie is interested in sharing ideas with other women makers, and if you’re interested in buying anything just get in touch.
Last year I started the shoebox scheme for local families in need. It was very successful. This year Carlos fish and chip shop in Alnwick is the drop off point for toys, groceries and shoeboxes and hampers. People should cover the shoebox in Christmas paper and put a note on top secured with elastic band as to who it is for. eg. elderly man, elderly woman, child, boy or girl age group or single man or woman. Shoeboxes should contain special gifts for the recipient. We have many families locally that need help. Please let us know of anyone you think may need help. 2nd hand toys in good condition, food for the food bank, luxury items for the hampers and filled shoeboxes are all welcome. If you cant do a shoebox, one or two items are still most gratefully accepted. I am looking for volunteers to organise the same in different parts of Northumberland.
