The Forest Store is part of the New Forest National Park Authority’s work to help generate income to look after the landscape, wildlife and culture that makes the New Forest so special.
Jon Pemberton, Member of 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.’
