Forest Edge Latest Issue

Welcome to the August edition of the Forest Edge Gazette.

Well, didn’t we have spells of sunshine last month with some people struggling with the heat including our pets…. hopefully August will be bright and sunny too but maybe not quite as hot!

We hope you have a great summer with loads of local community events to enjoy with all the family and any holidays you have planned. If you are looking for things to do this month, check out our What’s On guide pages 36-37 and as always there is our monthly walk (pages 24-25) for those lazy summer Sundays.

Our Forest People article this month proudly features Rose Road and we talk to the CEO Juno Hollyhock about the worthwhile work they do and how local people can show their support. In this issue we have articles Spinnaker Tower abseil raises 20K for Oakhaven Hospice, TV documentary highlights homelessness network behind New Forest Nightstop and much more besides… Also check out our Education News pages 12-13. If you are a local school and want to feature do contact us as we print it for free!

We are always happy to connect with local people whether it be Community or Education news, Local Events or Charity Fundraisers or whether you are a local businesses looking to discuss their marketing strategy. Please do contact us to discuss your advertising needs and how your local free community magazine can help you, email Please also get in touch if you have any events you would like advertised on our website or in our What’s On section in the publications.
