Written by Fete Organisers.

The 2014 Forncett Village Fete
Saturday June 28th 2014
at Forncett Village Hall and Jubilee Green

UPDATE 16th July

Following the Fete Committee 'Review' meeting on 15th July, we can announce that the net total raised was £2,210.02, giving each of the School, Little Tractors Playgroup and Village Hall £736.67.

Thanks again to all who contributed to such a brilliant outcome.

UPDATE Monday 30th June

Despite a very poor weather forecast, hundreds of people enjoyed over two hours of near perfect 'Fete' weather on Saturday afternoon taking advantage of all the attractions on offer to suit young and old.  For a full report with masses of colour photos of the activities and visitors see these special pages from the July 2014 Forncett Flyer or get the full version of 'The Flyer' here Forncett Flyer July 2014.

It was unfortunate that activities were cut short just before the scheduled finish time by a torrential downpour, but we had better weather than predicted for much of the time and hope that everyone enjoyed themselves. We anticipate that the event will have raised an amount comparable with last year's total, to be shared equally between Forncett Primary School, Little Tractors Playgroup and the Village Hall. 

Thanks to everyone who helped in any way: planning, setting up, assisting at stalls and activities on the day, clearing away, donating prizes, providing car parking, scaffolding, bunting, netting etc, ... and, of course, to villagers, friends and relatives who turned out in force to make it all worthwhile and such a great day for the community of Forncett. 

Original notice of event:

Wymondham Lions Club will be at the Forncett Fete collecting old specs, old coins and old hearing aids to be recycled to help disadvantaged people, so bring them along please!

As last year, the Forncett Village Fete will be held at the Village Hall (incorporating Jubilee Green), raising funds for The Village Hall, Little Tractors Playgroup and Forncett School.  In 2013 we were blessed with excellent weather and tremendous support from all sections of our community, and we are hoping for just the same again!
