What is Forncett Nature Matters?

How to get in touch

Please email:        

Forncett Nature Matters is an unconstituted group of like minded people with care of the environment at their heart.  It is lead by a Steering Group of 6.  There is currently no subscription to join the group - everyone who would like to work towards increasing space for nature, enhancing bio-diversity and connecting habitats is welcome.  We aim to hold meetings 4 times a year and activities more frequently.  These will include plant surveys of verges, hedgerows and other spaces, practical wild-life enhancement projects locally and working with other local groups and organisations to understand and develop the wildlife potential of our village. There will be opportunities to learn and to share knowledge and experience.  If you would like to get involved or join our mailing list please send us an email.

Meet the Steering Group:

Billy Hosea

I live in Forncett St Mary. I like gardening with patches left to grow wild. Hawk moths come to feed on the bindweed flowers and peacock butterflies lay their eggs on the nettles.

Claire Jordan

I have lived in Norfolk for 43 years.  I have tried to make my garden a space where mixed habitats allow nature to flourish.  I have always gardened organically and encouraged pollinators.

I want other creatures and plants to share the space we humans use and knowing that together we can make a difference is inspiring. My partner and I created a wildlife-friendly plot on the Forncett boundary about 12 years ago and look foward to linking it to other habitats.

Carol Sharp


I have lived in Forncett End for 26 years and have created woodland and wildflower meadows as well as a large pond. I hope to share my experience, inspire and learn more from others in the community to create resilient ecosystems our villages.

Christina Wakeford

I’ve been interested in the natural world since childhood and I now love to garden with wildlife in mind, trying to do my bit for biodiversity. Living in Forncett since 1982, I’ve planted trees and hedges, a wildflower meadow and made habitats of ‘dead hedges’ and a small pond. I’m looking forward to meeting like minded people through FNM.
