A New Website for Felixstowe’s Record Holders Republic TV

Published

on

This is an internet site which started in 2001, where people can send in their videos under the categories of: comedy, sport, music, weird or strange, news and much more. We can also film anything that is appealing for our audiences around the world, which include a big following in UK, Asia, India and The USA. RHR TV is world wide but has a hint of Felixstowe. 

We are very lucky to have in the RHR TV team Fran Capo from USA, where we have her TV show called Live It Up, along with all her amazing stunts and her mini-submarine trip down to the wreck of the Titanic. We also have in our team David Adamovich, aka The Great Throwdini; the fastest and most accurate knife thrower in the world who holds over 20 records. David is also our USA President and has been with us throwing his weight around as well as his knives since 2006.

Our record breakers website has been well known on the record breaking grapevine since it started in 2001. With a strong team of 20 lending their hand, we hope RHR TV will bring some interest to Felixstowe and become well known for the videos it features.

Please do send in your videos, request a filming, tune in or just send in your comments. With this new video website, we hope to help put Felixstowe on the map!

Trimley Artist Shares Her Passion for Creativity

Published

on

Angela Ashford is an incredibly talented artist based in Trimley. She has shown a great passion for helping others – here she is to tell us about the charities she’s worked with and what inspires her work…

Even though I have lived in various places around the world, I was born and brought up in Suffolk. So after all the traveling settled once again in the county I call home, and consider myself a Suffolk girl at heart. 

I am mainly a self-taught artist as I never had the luxury of going to university to study art, due to being profoundly dyslexic. This I did not find out until later in life as it was not recognised in the 1960s & 70s as it is today.  I am now retired from the NHS where I had worked for the last 10 years and live in Trimley St Mary.  It is here and now that I can concentrate fully on art. 

I have a heart for sharing my knowledge with others, I am not talking about teaching… I will leave that to those who are professionally trained. But to come along side people and small groups to encourage them to express themselves creatively in art and crafts of various sorts. 

Last year I started working with “Insideout,” an Ipswich based charity as one of their artists.

“The charity believes in the power of the creative process to strengthen the spirit.”

It works with people of all ages who live with mental health issues in their lives. Insideout not only offers art and crafts but singing and creative writing as well, different ways in which people are encouraged to express themselves in. 

Another small charity I’ve started working with doing much the same as with Insideout and that is “Beam” in Ipswich….  Beam supports mothers whose children have bean adopted and put into care or live elsewhere.  It gives them a place they can meet up share and with one another, where there is no judgement, just loving support. 

Last autunm my local primary school in Trimley St Mary. They were requiring the help of someone who could help design a large mural for the reception class outside play area, I decided to volunteer. I designed the mural, and together with parents and children, we painted what resembled a giant paint by numbers with all ages joining in to paint the mural. It was such a fun day. 

And lastly, I was so delighted last year to be sponsored by Fred Olson to paint an Elmer for the “Elmer’s Big Parade Ipswich,” He was called “Elmer’s Travel Trunk,” and raised £4,400 towards the St Elizabeth Hospice, which is dear to my heart. 

In my own work, I normally work in various genres from Portraiture and Prophetic art, (paintings based on biblical truths,) to more recently collages with sea glass and drift wood, as I love beach-combing and try to find ways to show the beauty in what I find on the beach. 

My website is www.theashfordstudio.co.uk  and I have recently set up a shop on Etsy called LoveBeachCombing, Please  visit these sites to see more of my work.
