About Us


Forest Row Local (formerly forest row news) is THE local community magazine for Forest Row and surrounding Villages.

We are a family business and have been publishing the magazine since we took over in 2007. The magazine was originally formed as the Forest Row News in 2005, we have since renamed it to Forest Row Local and created many additional online benefits for our readers and advertisers as well as improving on the overall quality and distribution.

Forest Row Local has a great reputation with both readers and advertisers. We distribute 3,200 full colour glossy magazines each month through the Royal Mail to homes and businesses in the 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, café’s, farm shops, Wych Cross garden centre and we have a stand in Tesco Express.

We consider it very important to have the correct ratio of content pages to advertiser pages in the magazine. Each month we publish topical articles, local community news and events, places to visit and regular features such as the monthly horoscopes, tech tips, book reviews, recipes, health articles and our puzzle page.

Forest Row Local is owned and published by Pure Publications, a limited company registered in England under company number 08171885.
