There are three distinctive ranges: Forest Life which includes clothing and gifts; Forest Tribe for the young and the young-at-heart;
-Specially commissioned books, cards and canvas prints featuring beautiful photographs of the New Forest
-Novel items such as a Forest trumps game, a recycled Frisbee and a magic photo mug that reveals a Forest picture when hot liquid is poured into it
-Great outdoor items including a waterproof that doubles as a groundsheet, a welly bag, a bike-seat cover and an ice-scraper all with special New Forest messages
-An attractive range of colourful T-shirts with chic designs inspired by the New Forest’s plants and animals.
The products are kind to the environment wherever possible – for example, the T-shirts use organic cotton and water-based inks, while the ice-scraper is made from recycled UK number plates!
Martin O’Neill, Director of Information and Visitor Services for the New Forest National Park Authority, said: ‘I hope that The Forest Store will appeal to visitors and people who live and work here whether they are looking for memories to take home, gifts for friends or a treat for themselves.
‘Every penny of profit from purchases will go back into the National Park Authority’s work which includes support for commoning, helping to prevent animal accidents and safeguarding the landscape that we all enjoy.
‘Each time you shop at the Forest Store you will be helping to look after the National Park too.’
The Forest Store is at www.foreststore.co.uk
