A star is born!

Isn’t she lovely – isn’t she wonderful?
Our ‘Hickory Dickory Dock’ inspired ‘Angelina Ballerina’, complete with tiara, tutu and ballet slippers!

The rogue faction of Matakanas ‘The Frill Seekers’ have been at it again!
Sunday night, if you were sneaky, you may have spotted balaclava clad Frill Seekers at large in Warkworth high street, ready to wage an attack of the loveliest kind on our creatively challenged clock tower.

After a bit of Dutch courage at the Bridgey, and lots of giggling, they scampered up and down ladders as quick as a… er…. mouse.
The result, a stunning knitted and crocheted Angelina with two accompanying glorious hyperbolic pendulum.
What a treat for the locals and by all accounts she has been very well received.

Nowhere is safe from beautification. Nowhere!

George and the Frill Seeker

Once upon a time there was a handsome King named George.
At a certain time of year, the soldiers who fought and in many cases gave their lives to defend George and all he stands for, are remembered and celebrated.
They, the Anzacs, are remembered and thanked gratefully here by a kind hearted Frill Seeker.
