Since 1978, The Ringwood Society has been responsible for the Blue Plaque Scheme which operates within Ringwood and the wider parish. The Society undertakes to erect plaques throughout the town to commemorate notable people, places and events. The subject can either have been identified by The Ringwood Society or through a nomination from a member of the public.
The criteria on which the Blue Plaque Scheme run is modelled on those applied by English Heritage to their Blue Plaque scheme in London.
