Following a rigorous selection process, the Council is pleased to announce that Chris Wilkins, currently Town Clerk of Sturminster Newton has been appointed as Town Clerk.

He comes with a wealth of experience and is expected to commence his duties at the end of July.

Councillor Tim Ward the Mayor of Ringwood said “We have set very high standards for this appointment which is why it has taken two rounds of advertising before we were able to find a candidate who meets our exacting standards.

Chris was the unanimous choice of our Selection Panel and I am sure that he is the right person to lead our staff in delivering services for the community of Ringwood, and we look forward to him starting with us next month”
