We are a registered charity and the Community Centre for the market town of Ringwood – over 100 clubs, societies and organisations regularly meet in our various halls and rooms. We also hire out our halls and rooms for functions, events and meetings.
Greyfriars was formed as a charity in 1958 with the Georgian house fronting Christchurch Road. Over the years, halls and an Activities Centre have been added. 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.
Some of our activities are welfare based, aimed at helping people in the community who need support – this includes the popular minibus service
When you make a booking with us you are also supporting our work as a charity in serving the local Ringwood community.
