Your local community magazine in the New Forest

Welcome to the New Forest Messenger Magazine, established in 2015, YOUR VOICE ACROSS THE FOREST.

We are a free colour publication published quarterly and distributed through various outlets over the New Forest.

The Messenger fills a large gap in the market here in the New Forest for an informative publication for the over 50 age group.

New Forest Messenger

Each issue is packed with informative topics, interesting news, puzzles, recipes, lots of competitions and advertising from local tradespeople.

We are very proud to support local charities Oakhaven Hospice, Age Concern New Forest and Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance. Please email in and let us know of any charity fund raising event you would like us to mention.

We hope to include more worthy charities over the next year.
