Ringwood school

School car park
This was our first year at Ringwood School, which proved to be an excellent new venue for us. We used the dining room at lunchtime and a separate classroom for the speakers to deliver their talks and demonstrations. We also had more outside exhibits than ever this year. The School car park can take over 100 cars and with additional parking available in the Leisure Centre car park just across the road we shouldn't be short of parking.
