Wild Collections - 'The Parliament'

  • Facebook
  • Instagram

Wild Collections created by Jess Sawers and local artist Nicola Hardy is a new poetic series about growth, self-love and friendship based on weird and wacky animal collective nouns. 

Every book features a BIG SCARY WORD - a tool designed to make learning new vocabulary FUN for both adults and children. This kickstarts a process known in education as 'synchronous learning', which is how kids learn at school.


All Wild Collections books are lovingly told in rhythmic, rhyming verse alongside beautiful hand-painted artwork. 

The books are all self-published, self-made and internationally crowdfunded.

Sustainable and Environmentally

Friendly Wax Melts

Local businesswoman, convinced that she could produce a more environmentally friendly product than what was available locally, set up a hand-crafted, affordable, luxury wax melts business during lockdown.


While on furlough from her full-time job, Leanne was determined to find a way to make the best wax melts. Once she had achieved this, Leanne extended her range to include luxury reed diffusers as well as luxury hand wash sets. 


Says Leanne, “Our ethos is to be as sustainable and environmentally friendly as possible, while using natural soy wax and the best smelling fragrances that will last for hours and fill your home with a clean and relaxing scent.”

Prices from £3.50 - Bargain!
