Ringwood & Verwood Round Table started life as Ringwood & District Round Table, which originally formed back in 1959 as a way of young men from Ringwood & the surrounding villages to put something back into the local community, make new friends & do new things. Over the following 47 years, the members of our Table proceeded to found the British Pedal Car Grand Prix in Ringwood, host charity events & make friendships which endure to this day. Some of our current members grew up in Table households, which their parents involved in Round Table or Ladies Circle (or both). Unfortunately, 2006 saw Ringwood & District Round Table disband & cease to be a force for good in the local area, as its remaining members reached the age that they need to leave Round Table & move on to 41-Club without having younger members to take over the reigns.
When we re-formed in the spring of 2020, we did so mindful of what has gone before, and how successful Round Table was in Ringwood. We also felt it was important to acknowledge our proud history in the community. Below is a Gallery of photo’s from our history, and a list of our past Chairmen who led our table through its 47 years of doing more.

Our Past Chairmen
All of our previous Chairmen have sculpted & guided our Table to the present day. Some of the names on the list will be known to many for the contribution that they made to the local area through their good deeds, both as part of Round Table & outside of the organisation, while others will be remembered fondly by past members of the Table for the good times & good deeds done.
