Ambitions runs several activities creating and selling goods our young people / adults have made. Each group takes responsibility for their sales, money, re-ordering etc.

Chatterbox Cards

Chatterbox Cards is mainly a card company designing and producing cards for all occasions. Over Christmas 2011, we doubled our orders from 2010 and now have local companies who have become regular customers. Wedding packages are also undertaken - invites, place names, menu cards and even thank you cards all to the customer's specification. We also make our own handmade paper which is used in many designs and hope to increase our range to include gift boxes.


Nik Naks

Nik Naks is based on the same principles as Chatterbox cards and includes lots of different crafts and gifts such as painted mugs, jewelry, handmade candles and much more. Orders can also be taken for personalised gifts. All tasks are carried out by the team and we are constantly researching and introducing new ideas.


Plot to Plate

Plot to Plate is the horticultural project based at Northorpe Hall. Planting is planned and recorded, then the seeds must be nurtured, re-potted and eventually transferred to the allotment. The care of the plants lasts all year and the exciting time is the harvesting. Produce is sold locally or used back at base for meals. Then the process starts again.


Sew n Sew

Sew and Sew is our newest company but in the run upto Christmas has been a huge success which we are sure will continue this year. The range includes wheat bags, aprons, cushions etc and the whole team is involved from start to finish. We regularly take orders for personalised gifts and the range is constantly growing as we learn new skills and become more adventurous.
