Second Life Forest Row

Second Life, Forest Row’s Community Shop

Second Life, Forest Row’s Community Shop, opened in June 2023.

Second Life has become a place where unwanted goods can be left, treasures and necessities can be bought, local artisans can acquire raw materials and profile their products, people can drop in to talk, ask questions, browse, have a laugh, and where anyone can join in and work for a few hours to sell, sort or tidy.

Second Life sells, gifts, repurposes, repairs, recycles and collaborates with local artists who reimagine and upcycle donations.

Second Life even held a fashion show at Forest Row Festival.

Everyone who has contributed to the creation of Second Life can be proud because it:

  • meets community need
  • creates employment
  • is a valued place to go in the village
  • is a hub for other activities (inc. pop up shops, book club, volunteer socials)

Surplus funds are reinvested into the community through our Frow Resource Sponsorship Scheme.

44 metric tonnes of unwanted goods have been donated to Second Life so far – that’s equivalent to 4 double-decker buses!
