An Ellon crafts and hobbies group is calling on local people to join in its activities.

Create! is open to both men and women and meets on the first and third Wednesday of the month.

The group is encouraging potential new members and their friends to come along to their regular meetings in St Mary’s Hall in the town’s South Road.

Up to 12 people attend each meeting and activities include jewellery making, picture framing, glass and stone painting, card making and tapestry.

Kim Leonard, who organises the group with Wendy Jeffries, said: “Create is a place to make and meet friends, bring your own craft or hobby and enjoy social and craft time.

“Whether your hobby is art-based, needlecraft, calligraphy, paper-craft, jewellery making, or something different, bring it along and Create.

“Why not come along and bring a friend and enjoy a cuppa and a biscuit.”

Kim added: “Crafters simply bring along their chosen pursuit, relax and enjoy an afternoon in pleasant company.

“If they should encounter a problem with their ‘creation’ perhaps others in the group will have expertise or advice to offer, or crafters may be able to help another member of the group.”

There is no charge to attend the groups, which are from 1-3.30pm, but a donation can be made towards refreshments

Meetings for the rest of the year are: September 3 and 17, October 1 and 15, November 5 and 19, December 3 and 17.
