Roundabout Ringwood December 2018

Dear readers

No doubt like me you probably thought scam emails and letters are a scourge of the internet age, but surprisingly they have been with us for around 150 years, as in the 1870s for only $75 you could buy $1500 of the ‘best and safest’ counterfeit money! A special feature on page 36 has a potted history of the Post Office which explains all and even why it was called Royal Mail.

Also on this subject we have the Christmas posting dates on page 43.

If you are a chocoholic combined with a terrible sweet tooth then don’t look at the beauty article on page 40! Here you’ll find a selection of gift ideas for those special people like teachers, best friends, yourself and especially chocoholics with a special chocolate and marshmallow face mask packaged with a bar of Green & Black’s chocolate! I would be very tempted to try it although the combination with pink clay might make it rather gritty of course!

Ringwood’s annual Christmas Eve carols in the Market Place is always a great way to put you in the festive mood. It’s a very sociable occasion as most of the town seems to turn up!

Don’t forget if you want to treat a loved one AND help local businesses, look in here first in the ‘Local Business Directory’ on page 46!

Finally my team and I would like to wish all our readers and advertisers old and new the very warmest of festive greetings for this Christmas and the New Year.
