EXHIBITION: History of Ringmer. This will be an opportunity to find out about how Ringmer came to be as it is today; to see what Ringmer looked like a century ago; to find out how to study the history of your house, or its site; and to learn about the lives of the people who lived here in the past. Research carried out by History Group members over almost 40 years has shown just how much information is available and has provided the tools to facilitate individual studies by anyone interested in learning more about a particular facet of village life, such as the history of a road, or a house, or an activity, or a particular family. In particular we have accumulated a quite remarkable archive of images of Ringmer as it used to be, and many of those pictures will be on display. If you have children or grandchildren with you on the day, please bring them with you, we hope this will be a child-friendly event. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available. Come along to the Scout Hut (on the Village Green) tomorrow, Saturday, 10am to noon.
