SLO Information: Forest Green Rovers

16 January 2019

Ahead of our first-ever visit to the New Lawn this weekend, our Supporter Liaison Officer has compiled useful information for your trip...

 

Bury: Are there any known traffic issues en route to the Stadium? I.e any road closures or roadworks?

Forest Green Rovers: Please check social media on the day and tune into Radio Gloucestershire.

 

Bury: Is car parking available for Bury fans? If so, please provide details (where, how much etc). If no, information on the nearest location would be appreciated.

Forest Green Rovers: There's limited parking onsite and in the area, so we do encourage all supporters to travel on the official coaches.

We operate a local Park and Ride service from Renishaw on Stroud Road (postcode: GL5 5HA). Parking is on a first-come, first-served basis and costs just £3.00 per car (cash or card).

If you are driving, please try to car share where possible or use public transport. Make sure to allow plenty of time, as the last part of your journey is through a small village, which can become quite congested on a Matchday.

 

Bury: What is the process for blue badge holders?

Forest Green Rovers: Away supporters can pre-book by calling 0333 123 1889. There is no cost for this and if there are no spaces left, we recommend parking at a neighbouring primary school. There is a small cost for parking at the school.

 

Bury: Please give details of pre-match venue for Bury fans (on-site bar, away fan friendly pubs etc).

Forest Green Rovers: Very limited parking is available at the neighbouring school, within easy walking distance (90m) from the stadium, at a £5 per vehicle (cash or card). This car park gets full 2 hours before kick-off.

If you choose to park in the local residential area, please park with consideration for our neighbours and adhere to local parking enforcement. Please be aware that Parking Enforcement Officers do patrol on matchdays.

 

Bury: Where is the nearest cash machine to the Stadium?

Forest Green Rovers: Nailsworth, Tesco Express.

 

Bury: What is the nearest train station to the Stadium and what is the approximate distance and walking time?

Forest Green Rovers: If you're travelling by train, the nearest station is in Stroud. Buses to Forest Green Rovers run approximately every 30 minutes from Stroud/Gloucester (number 63).

 

Bury: What food and drink is available in the concourse at the Stadium?

The bar opens 3 hours before kick-off and will serve a range of lager, cider, wine and soft drinks until kick-off. There'll also be a selection of bar snacks available from the bar on the day.

Inside the ground, you'll be able to purchase hot food, cold drinks, hot drinks and snacks from the West Terrace catering outlet, once the turnstiles open.
