1a and b are two sides of the same specimen, accidentally cracked it.
3 is very brittle and chalk like in texture but it doesn't rub off as easily.
I suspect 4 to be aventurine but I'm not sure.
Not one clue about the rest.
If anyone could help me identify what these are i would be very grateful.

Hello and welcome to the forum. Firstly there are no fossils that I can see except for number 5 which might be part of a belemnite sticking out - a good photo of the cylindrical object's end might help. I will list each one as they are shown in the sequece - it just makes it easier for me!
  1. pebble of an unidentified rock wth I think modern limpit depressions
  2. possibly belemnite
  3.  achip of possible hard rock off a sea defence or similar
  4. modern borings, possibly by Piddock shells
  5. as1 & 4
  6. &7 looks like flint

Your #4 looks igneous/metamorphic and I would suggest epidote rather than aventurine.
