Christina Wakeford and Cynthia Finlayson opened their gardens for charity under the National Gardens Scheme on Sunday 23rd June 2013. The weather, though not perfect, provided much sunshine as well as the occasional shower and there was an excellent turnout of visitors. A goodly sum was raised for NGS charities as well as a more modest sum from the tea tent run by the Diggers & Dibblers team which will be donated to the Forncett Village Hall fund.
Update: May 11th 2013
We have just heard that Forncett has won one of the £250 prizes for participating in the Litter Pick. The prize money must be used for 'The Community'. Those who helped with the Litter Pick have been asked for ideas - the final decision will be made by the Parish Council as the Litter Pick was done 'in their name'. The prize is an extra bonus - in addition to the benefits of a cleaner village and some excellent Community work! Wonderful!

Congratulations to all volunteers who took part in our 'Big Litter Pick' - one of a number taking place throughout South Norfolk this Spring. The photo shows 18 of the (mostly well-behaved!) volunteers at the Village Halll after depositing their bags of litter and enjoying some welcome refreshments provided by the Parish Council and served by Anne,
