Our History

The Centre was opened in 2015. It was largely funded by Hampshire County with additional funding from Ringwood Town Council and New Forest District Council.

Pupils from Ringwood School developed a business plan.  They had identified that the young people of Ringwood wanted an inclusive space where they can relax, meet friends and develop social skills in a safe, comfortable, café style atmosphere.  The ethos of providing an inclusive space with comfortable seating, affordable drinks and snacks, Wi-Fi and games equipment continues today.

Our Mission

Ringwood Town Council hopes that Carvers Clubhouse will enhance the quality of life for children, young people and their families in the town by providing a space for enjoyment, education, entertainment and recreation.  We do this by encouraging hirers who provide activities and services aimed at children and young people, by developing our own activities, providing a community café and toys, games and sports equipment for the enjoyment of all.
