The Ashdown Forest Act allows refreshments (limited to ice-creams and hot/cold drinks) to be sold in up to 6 car parks. The licences for the refreshment concessions are renewed on a yearly basis.  

We are once again looking to invite applications from individual ice cream concessions and mobile refreshment concessions (i.e. tea and coffee vans) for a period of one year, commencing 01 March 2024 and terminating 28 February 2025. Closing date for application is 2 February 2024.  Please follow the following link for more information.
