Shop & Buy Local
We want to ensure that all our local towns and village centres are vibrant places. By working closely with all local business interests and community organisations we will help encourage special events and activities to encourage more people to use local shops and businesses
The Brand New Forest Card Scheme
At the heart of the Shop and Buy Campaign is the Brand New Forest Card scheme. Buy your card annually for just £5 and save lots of money at your favourite shops, pubs, restaurants, visitor attractions and services throughout the New Forest. You could easily redeem the cost of the card in its first use!
The Brand New Forest Card scheme backs local businesses; buy one and get special offers and rewards throughout the year.
To see full details of all offers see the Brand New Forest Card section of this website.
New Forest Marque
Over the last 10 years New Forest Produce Ltd. and its New Forest Marque have become synonymous with high quality local food and produce. Brand New Forest works closely with New Forest Produce and its members to promote the benefits and high quality products to residents and visitors alike.
New Forest Purchasing Organisation
The New Forest Purchasing Organistion helps businesses reduce costs through economies of scale. Many New Forest Tourism Association member businesses have already made significant cost savings on everything from energy to dried goods. It is hoped that through the Brand New Forest campaign these benefits can be made available to all business sectors.
Local retail events
Throughout the year, Brand New Forest supports a wide number of town and village centre events. From Christmas events in Lymington and Lyndhurst to the Pedal Car Grand Prix in Ringwood and Milford on Sea Food Week. These events are vital in supporting our local, independent retailers.
