Ringwood’s 2022 Winter ‘Wanderland’ kicks off with the annual community event on Sunday 27th November. This free event takes place in the town centre and will be even bigger this year with activities in the Gateway, High Street, Market Place and Southampton Road. The build-up is even more exciting with the announcement that the roadworks to widen the A31 have ended early meaning the town is fully accessible once again.
At a recent Town Council meeting, the Town Mayor presented certificates to recipients of grant aid; £1,000 was awarded to Citizens Advice New Forest towards the running costs of this vital service and £600 to Crowe Women’s Institute towards the cost of insulating their hall.
On the eve of the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II, this Sunday, there will be a special commemorative service in Ringwood Parish Church at 6.00pm. All are welcome.
