At last night’s Council meeting the Town Clerk presented a Certificate to Sam Whittingham in recognition of his position as a Student Advisor.

Each year, two students from Ringwood School are appointed to each committee and they provide invaluable advice to Councillors on the views of young people, prior to decisions being made.

Sam and his fellow students have made a significant contribution to debates and discussions, and have helped out at community events, showing wisdom beyond their years, passion and enthusiasm.

Thank you and best wishes to you all for the future.
