More about Greyfriars

We are a registered charity and the Community Centre for the market town of Ringwood – over 120 clubs, societies and organisations regularly meet in our various halls and rooms. There is something for everyone!  

Although Greyfriars has been established a long time, we are also planning ahead to meet future needs in Ringwood and a major current project is to build a new Arts Centre – actually on the Greyfriars site.  To read more about this, please see the item and linked page immediately below.

Some of our activities are welfare based, aimed at helping people in the community who need support – this includes offering a minibus service and a Good Neighbours Scheme.

When you make a booking with us you are also supporting our work in serving the local Ringwood community.  

 New Arts Centre (and please vote now)

Looking to the future, we have an exciting plan for a new Arts Centre at Greyfriars. This will meet a significant community need and is a joint project with Ringwood Musical and Dramatic Society (RMDS).  Planning permission has been granted and fund raising is well under way.

There is an art exhibition in the Coffee Lounge by Michael Blake. Michael is a local artist who is retiring from full time work at the end of September and hopes to paint much more often.
His paintings are on show in the Megan Holman lounge until 25th September, and he is happy to take commissions. The snow leopard was painted specially to raise funds for the Blue Lamp Foundation, a charity started by PC David Rathband who was blinded by Raoul Moat in 2010. After David’s death, many champions from all the emergency services came forward to keep the charity alive.
