Oct. 31, 2011 - PRLog -- The Authority is looking to recruit four new ‘Local Information Points’ in these areas. The points provide visitors and residents with easy access to information about the National Park and are stocked with maps, leaflets and publications about what to see and where to go.
Business owners who are successful in hosting a Local Information Point will receive training, support and an annual contribution of £300 from the Authority, as well as being advertised in a range of publications and websites as an information point.
Jim Mitchell, Interpretation Officer, said: ‘The Local Information Point scheme has proved to be extremely successful since starting in 2008. The scheme is about recognising and supporting the great work that local businesses play in championing the New Forest and what makes it special.’
Jane Dalton from Bestsellers Bookshop in Brockenhurst, a Local Information Point since 2008, said: ‘Visitors enjoy having a focal point at the start of their visit. We enjoy welcoming both visitors and locals and our knowledge of the Forest has increased tenfold since becoming a Local Information Point.’
For more information on Local Information Points and how to apply visit  or contact Jim Mitchell at, or 01590 646681.
