Ringwood Town Council

Town Mayor

At the Annual Council meeting on 30th May 2018, Town Councillors unanimously elected Councillor Tony Ring as Town Mayor. He was re-elected to the position in May 2019 and 2021 and his current term of office continues until the Annual Council meeting in May 2022.

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. Tony Ring and the Deputy Mayor Cllr. Philip Day.

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.
