Margaret is involved with the Tynemouth Volunteer Life Brigade and the North Shields Fishermen's Mission. She researched and knitted a traditional gansey for her husband Alex Hastie.

"Yes, I, the one made, I made one for my husband which is the Craster pattern"
Yes, I, the one made, I made one for my husband which is the Craster pattern and it’s very nice. It’s got the zigzag pattern on it which is supposed to be the marriage lines and it’s the ups and downs of marriage, which seems to have lasted anyway, as we’ve been married 50, 51 years now! So we’ve survived the ups and downs, I think.
