For the third year running, the Visitor Information service will be open this summer at Ringwood Gateway in the town centre and will be manned by Nicky Dicken-Fuller, John Gilford and Eve Franklin as well as a willing group of volunteers.
The service is very much a self service one with staff on hand to give advice. Although based in the council offices, it is operated quite separately from the town and district councils and apart from the sale of parking clocks, staff and volunteers will not be able to deal with ordinary town and district service matters.
A self service facility is also available during the normal working week and the weekend provision seeks to enhance the service.
If there are any local residents who would like to get involved in a voluntary capacity and make new friends whilst helping visitors in the Information Centre, then please contact Christine Smith on 01425 484725 or email Christine.firstname.lastname@example.org
