This site is managed by the Friends of Ringwood Forest (FoRF). It aims to be a source of information about the Hampshire and Dorset Authorities' Minerals & Waste proposals for Ringwood Forest and Moors Valley Country Park & Forest and the associated democratic consultation processes.

Founded in April 2011, FoRF is a community driven pressure group run by volunteers. It represents a growing number of supporters (3,400+ in Dec 2013), known as the Interest Group, drawn from the people of Verwood, other Dorset & Hampshire towns & villages and many other UK & International locations who share a set of common aims.

Our Story so far

Since April 2011 FoRF has organised the "No To Purple Haze" campaign opposing Hampshire's allocation of part of Ringwood Forest and Moors Valley Country Park & Forest (MVCP) as a quarry and landfill site known as Purple Haze (North).

In December 2013 the campaign expanded to include Purple Haze (South) after the site was offered to Dorset as a quarry & restoration site. (Site Map to be updated).
