Since 2006, The Bell Inn has donated a percentage of our revenue to the New Forest Trust, the conservation charity which helps to protect the New Forest National Park – and we’re pleased to say we’ve finally reached the £25,000 landmark!

The conservation charity was introduced in 2003 with the aim of securing the future of the New Forest for those who live in it and for those who love it, supporting activities and organisations who strive to conserve the flora, fauna and commoning practices of this special area.

Robert. A. Crosthwaite Eyre, owner of The Bell Inn, said: “I am delighted that we have reached this landmark and are able to continue supporting such a great charity.

“The New Forest Trust means a lot to both my family and the business, so it is our pleasure to help however we can.”

The Crosthwaite Eyre family, who own The Bell Inn, have always been instrumental in bringing together the elements of concern for the New Forest, including the 1877 New Forest Act, which prohibited further enclosures by the Crown.

William Ziegler, chairman of the New Forest Trust, said: “We rely on kind donations from New Forest businesses such as The Bell Inn to keep the trust going.

“Over the past ten years The Bell Inn has been an amazing supporter and we can’t thank them enough for their £25,000 donation.”
