Ashdown Park Hotel

“We have advertised with Forest Row Local for a number of years. Their customer service is second to none and the publication is an ideal way for us to engage with the local community.”

The Handyman

“I do a lot of business in Forest Row and the bulk of that business comes from customers who have seen my advert in Forest Row Local. I think most customers would prefer to deal with local tradesmen and Forest Row Local raises my profile with those customers”

Monica Brown

Chair. Forest Row Youth & Community Co Ltd

“As FRYACC & the charity ‘VENUe on The Green’ are in the process of closing down, their purpose fulfilled, can I just take this moment to thank you all for your support in giving us free publicity over the past 9 years. We started from nothing and no one knew us. It was the first introductory article you printed which made residents here aware that something new was about to begin and many readers over the years have told me how much they have appreciated the update of information along the way. Your little publication has been key to our success. Thank you!”

Objet D'art

“Being Picture Framers we cover a wide area with our service. Since advertising in Forest Row Local we have attracted numerous new customers from those areas, contributing to the continuing success of our business.”

Cat's Protection

Cats Protection has worked with Forest Row Local Community Magazine for some years now , as we are located so close to Forest Row, it’s really nice to be involved with the local community and to keep the residents informed of everything that is happening at the NCAC.

Helin Restaurant

“We have been advertising in Forest Row Local for over a year – even before we opened – and have had many customers who saw our adverts and booked to dine with us.  FRL has been a great help. Thank you.”

Easter is nearly upon us, and these protein pancakes are the perfect way to start the day (Although I definitely make these all year round!) I like to add protein powder as my diet tends to be low in protein, so it’s a great way to get more into my day. If you don’t like using…

The Compost Heap – the ‘Heart Chakra’ of the Garden

By Forest Row Local | 29/03/2022

Although I have written about compost before, there are many ways of thinking about compost, here is a slightly different approach… The ancient system of bodily chakras (or energy centres) which many of us know, lists seven main chakras – moving from the base of the spine – the root chakra, to the top of…
