At last night’s Full Council meeting Members approved nominations from Ringwood School for new Student Advisors for the 2016/17 academic year.

The Town Mayor then invited three of the new Student Advisors to present a grant aid cheque of £500 to Rebecca Carey, Chair of Ringwood School Arts Foundation, towards the cost of new tiered seating in the School’s Main Hall.

Ms Carey thanked the Council for its support and said that over £60,000 had now been raised for this fantastic community facility, which was also used for shows by Ringwood Musical and Dramatic Society and Swish of the Curtain, and for other events such as Careers Conventions.
