This was our fourth year at Ringwood School, and it proved to be an extremely successful day for everyone. We used the gazebo show entrance again this year, which we borrowed from our friends at "Ringwood Woodcarvers" An improved layout inside the main hall again this year and the visitors seemed to appreciate it. "Tools for Self Reliance" seemed very happy with their new corridor position. We had several new exhibitors this year alongside the old favourites. Next year will be different again and planning has already begun in October 2015.
