Local directory for the Forest of Dean

I have been surprised at how well our local Forest of Dean directory is doing. It hasn’t been live for that long and today looking at the number of views the different web sites we list have had has been a revelation. It is f course gratifying to see it being used. That is good for our visitors and of course good for the businesses and organisations we list. So, this is probably a good time to let people know what we are offering, all for no charge at all.
