Ringwood Town Council

Town Mayor

At the Annual Council meeting on 26th May 2022, Town Councillors elected Councillor Gareth DeBoos as Town Mayor. He was re-elected as Town Mayor at the Annual meeting on 17th May 2023.


Every town and parish council is required by law to elect one of its members as chairman as the first item of business at each annual meeting held in May. By convention, the elected chairman of a town council has the title of town mayor. At Ringwood, we also elect a deputy mayor; to perform the mayoral functions in any absence of the mayor.

The current mayor is Cllr. Gareth DeBoos and the Deputy Mayor Cllr. Rae Frederick.

Our mayor chairs every meeting of the council during his or her year of office and, if present, chairs the town’s annual assembly too; wearing the chain of office.

The mayor represents the council at civic events, processions, celebrations, services and functions through the year. The mayor is also keen to support local, clubs, charities and organisations and welcomes invitations to represent the council at suitable events. If you are interested in having the mayor attend an event you are organizing, he can be contacted through the Council Office.
