The Background

Written by Terry Henderson.

Forncett's Village Hall Management Committee was founded to manage the former Forncett St Mary School "for the purposes ... found expedient for the benefit of the inhabitants of the Parishes of Forncett St. Mary and Forncett St. Peter ... and its immediate vicinity without distinction of sex or political religious or other opinions" and is committed to managing the versatile space and unique facilities of this principle community asset for community services and activities in ways that meet the diverse needs of current and potential users.

The Village Hall has long been the focal point of a vibrant rural community, which makes extensive use of the facility for local community meetings (including Parish Council meetings) and community events. The amenity also provides local leisure and recreation activities (including Bowls, Whist and Line Dancing) and hosts Forncett Playgroup (Little Tractors).
