Ringwood has a long and fascinating history. It is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 and retains many features of interest. There is a potted history of the town composed by Tony White here. The historic map of 1872 pictured here illustrates quite how much the town has grown in recent decades. Today, much of the town centre is protected as a conservation area. The map here shows the precise extent of this.
The Council has made a grant aid award of £2,000 to Ringwood Junior School PTA (click on the photo for details).
Many Ringwood business owners believe that the big companies or online retailers might not even notice your purchases over the next few weeks but the small, independently owned businesses located conveniently on your high street or in your local town will. This Christmas, they want you to believe in the magic of shopping locally - so you can make your town or village merry and bright for many more for years to come.
All residents are invited to complete a short anonymous survey about how safe you feel in the town and what concerns you might have about crime and antisocial behaviour.
