TRUSTED AND RELIABLE

Husband and Wife team, Scott & Katherine have been managing Forest Row Local Community Magazine for over 10 years. Helping local organisations and small businesses stay in touch with the community via the printed magazine and now, in addition, through our online website and social media channels.

As well as covering local news, sports and community events, we’re trusted and truly focused on Forest Row. That’s why Forest Row Parish Council, Lions, Rotary, Forest Row Festival, Late Night Shopping, and many other local organisations all come to us.

Don't just take our word for it

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.”

FOCUSED DISTRIBUTION

Forest Row Local (formerly Forest Row News) was established in 2005 with a small distribution helping local business, charities and organisations stay in touch with the local community. When we took over in 2007, we could have expanded the distribution and covered a much wider area, like many other magazines have tried to do since then. Instead we decided to stay focused on the Forest Row Community and expand into surrounding villages, who also rely on and are part of the wider Forest Row Community.

We ensure we have a wide coverage of our focused distribution area, by delivering door to door and to drop off points. This means that local residents can receive the magazine every month, but it also widens our coverage to interested readers who are just passing through.

Every month we distribute 3,200 full colour glossy magazines through Royal Mail to homes and businesses in RH18 and TN7 Postcode districts. We also drop a further 800 magazines at various distribution points in Forest Row, Sharpthorne, Hartfield, Wych Cross & Nutley. These consist of shops, cafés, farm shops, Wych Cross garden centre and we have a stand in Tesco Express.
