A new improved Forge is well on its way!

We are delighted that Craig Ramus is now running the Forge.

Craig is very experienced in running community shops – and he’s won awards for it too!

He took over on 1 April (no, there is no significance to the date) and already he has made significant and very positive changes.

There is a lot more stock in the shop – including a great selection of fresh fruit and vegetable. Craig gets up at crack of dawn to visit Brighton Market for most of it, and the perishable items are kept gently chilled to keep  things fresh.

The chiller is much fuller, there is a selection of take-away foods.

As well as excellent quality good value meat from Jordans of Rose Green, we now have meat from the award winning John Murray at Loxwood. You must try his sausages!

There are too many other improvements to mention across the shop – come and have a look.

A new cafe menu is due any day as well, with lots more home-made goods such as quiches. The legendary sausage rolls are still on the menu of course and we now offer a vegetarian version.

Its all work in progress – with more improvements to following in the coming weeks and months.
