Winter Wanderland

Ringwood Winter Wanderland

Ringwood Events Team and Ringwood Town Council are delighted to bring you our very own Ringwood Winter Wanderland.

Walking trails around the Town will showcase winter displays in shops, businesses and homes as well of course as the wonderful Town Christmas Lights.

But don’t take our word for it – here is someone who can explain it much better (https://youtu.be/Zae8gdCwsDE

And we will also be supporting and promoting other initiatives in Ringwood such as collecting toys and gifts for the Rotary Christmas appeal for disadvantaged children and a Drive-In Service organised by Churches Together.

Spot the Oddity

If you are not familiar with the competition, participating shops display what are sometimes very odd ‘Oddities’ in their shop windows.

Your job is to spot it! There are 10 participating shops altogether. To enter you need to complete the entry form here https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/spottheoddity.

You might find it easier to download a hard copy form to use whilst you are walking round which you can download here.

Prizes will be £30 vouchers to spend in local shops including Calm Amongst the Chaos, Simply Beauty, Toys of Ringwood, The Lighthouse Cookshop, Love to b and the Dressing Room.

Make a window display

If you can, please decorate your windows during December so you and your neighbours can wander around your neighbourhood and enjoy the wonderful decorations.

These do not have to be expensive decorations or lights; they can be anything you like.

Simple or elaborate, everything counts.

For some ideas and inspiration, take a look at this collection from Ringwood organisations and further afield.

Come December, tag your efforts on our social media pages – Facebook/ringwoodwinterwanderland, Instagram/ringwoodtowncouncil and twitter/ringwoodtowncouncil.
