Ringwood Hall Hotel become our third Top Link business sponsor...

It gave us great pleasure to present Mark Davies and Rona Davies with their certificate when Ringwood Hall Hotel became our third Top Link business sponsor on Wednesday 7th June. 

Ringwood Hall Hotel is only a mile and a half from the Roundhouse and was home to Charles Markham who, with his friend Richard Barrow, formed the Staveley Iron and Coal Works Ltd. and subsequently built Barrow Hill Roundhouse in 1869 as a depot for locomotives serving the Staveley Works.  So we were particularly delighted when they agreed to become Top Linkers!  We’re looking forward to working with Ringwood Hall Hotel in lots of new and exciting ways as our project progresses.
