Resources for demonstrations, displays and talks

Often the best way to get people interested in ringing is for them to see it first hand. You'll also find you have a captive audience as well, so its important to have plenty of things to talk about and to show visitors. All of the items below are available to borrow from the BTO, so you'll just need to give us enough warning to get them sent out to you.
