FANS of the New Forest who own businesses in two Hampshire villages are needed to help promote the area they live in.

The New Forest National Park Authority would like to hear from anyone who likes talking about the New Forest and who owns a shop, post office or business in either Ashurst or Milford on Sea.

The authority is looking to recruit two businesses to provide information to visitors and residents about the National Park which will be stocked with maps, leaflets and publications about what to see and where to go.

Training, support and an annual contribution of £300 will be provided from the authority, as well as being advertised in a range of publications and websites as an information point.
