At last week’s Full Council meeting, the Town Mayor presented a Certificate of Merit to Mr Roger Bettle in recognition of his outstanding contribution to the community of Ringwood through voluntary work, both independently and with Rotary Club of Ringwood, over many years.

Roger is well known throughout the town for his happy smile and sunny disposition, and over the years has achieved a great deal for the town.

He was the fire behind Fanfare for Spring; championed the Rotary Picnic Area on the approach to town; was instrumental in delivering the Avon Valley Concerts and much much more.
