Upon coming to live in Forncett John Webster realized that the parish was widespread and not like a traditional village with a well-defined centre. His interest in the historical background and development of the settlements explained in part the late twentieth century profile. Although administered by a parish council, of which he became a member, Forncett seemed to lack one focus.
The Forncett Flyer, village newspaper for the Forncetts, is published monthly, except for September and January, and is an independent publication, paid for by Forncett Parish Council and by the local advertisers contained in it. It is produced by an editorial team consisting of Su Leavesley, April Carlin and (representing the Parish Council in an advisory role) Brian Frith.
There is an index to all Flyer issues up to end of June 2014 - Forncett Flyer Index
In early 2008 John Webster handed over ‘his Flyer’ to a new editorial team which now comprises April Carlin, treasurer, Terry Henderson, Su Leavesley and Graham Gale (from Jan 2016) joint editors. We have produced many issues and have improved and extended the publication to include 12 pages regularly (and occasionally 16 pages) with the outside pages in colour. New computer technology allowed us to be more adventurous with design, although we retained the Masthead, typeface and picture of the church that we all regarded with such affection. We have included many more photographs and pictures, and generally tightened up the layout.
