Roundabout Ringwood August 2019

Thursday, August 1st, 2019


This issue features quite a bit of history starting with our regular Now and Then article about 33 High Street better known as WHSmith on page 6. As well as being a stationer and bookseller for well over 100 years it is reputed to be one of the smallest Smiths in the UK!

Going back even further to 1849 on page 18 Ringwood CE Infants School celebrated 170 years recently.

And so as to not be left out it seems, Ringwood School is also celebrating its 60th birthday with a Family Festival on September 15th. Details on page 8 where we have an aerial photo of the original school taken a year after it was opened in 1960 and is almost unrecognisable to the current school!

Ringwood Carnival which signifies the end of the summer and is one of, if not the community highlight of the year has been running since 1928 and is on 21st September this year.

I would definitely recommend that you watch both 2pm and 7.15pm processions if you can, as the afternoon procession is always made up from many local children’s schools, clubs and groups and is always lots of fun and generally quite different from the evening one. A definite bonus!

Don’t forget to check out our What’s On pages 26 & 28 for lots of other local events and festivals to keep the family amused over the summer holiday.

Finally our ‘Local Business Directory’ on page 46 might be the answer to doing one of those house or garden projects which we all never quite get round to!
