RINGWOOD Waldorf School is holding its popular Christmas Bazaar this Saturday, with a special guest of honour.

Christine Polyblank, who launched the school in September 1974 with just six pupils, will be at the bazaar, which will be open from 11am until 4pm.

More than 40 traders will have stalls at the free-to-enter event, selling a wide range of quality goods, ideal for Christmas presents, including handmade jewellery, woodwork, garden ware, cosmetics and handcrafted leather bags.

The bazaar offers many activities for children such as candle-dipping, exploring a gnome garden and the chance to buy presents for parents in a specially created grotto.

School administrator Nigel Revill said: “We’re delighted that Christine will be joining us for what is a hugely popular event on our calendar.”

A restaurant will offer home-cooked hot lunches while cakes and other delicacies will be on sale at a special one-off café.

The warming Christmas atmosphere will be completed with live music and singing from pupils, parents, staff and friends of the school.

Money raised from the bazaar will go towards the school’s development fund.
