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 (although this is likely to chnage in 2024), 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 Lindi Staunton (Editor), Richard Ball (Production), Martin Lander (Advertising) and Anne Lander (Treasurer).
There is an index to all Flyer issues up to end of June 2014 - Forncett Flyer Index
