Here for the Community

Welcome to

Lyndhurst & Emery Down Community Hub

This website is an information and support platform for the residents and businesses of the geographical area of Lyndhurst & Emery Down, New Forest, UK.

During the COVID-19 outbreak, it became evident that as a community we needed to support each other and our local businesses, to ensure that the village of Lyndhurst remains the vibrant capital of the New Forest.

This platform provides #keepitlocal #supportlocal information, events and a directory of local businesses, to ensure that the local economy recovers and thrives.

#keepitlocal #supportlocal

Local businesses are the backbone of our economy, but what you may not know is that shopping at a local business, rather than a large chain or online, is actually better for the economy of our community.

To ensure a strong and sustainable local economy, people need to buy locally #keepitlocal #supportlocal.

Along with sustaining the local economy, shopping local also provides the following benefits:

  • Creates local jobs
  • Provides personality and character
  • Friendly customer service and shopping experience
  • Healthier environment (reduced carbon footprint)
  • Originality and individuality
  • Supporting local entrepreneurs
  • Helps create and shape the identity of the area
  • Provides tradition and innovation

The support from our community during COVID-19 was overwhelming throughout, from businesses and residents alike. However, so many businesses were not deemed as an essential provision and therefore were forced to close their doors. #keepitlocal #supportlocal ensures that we support ALL our local businesses and we think local first…
