The Horndon Society/Community Forum was formed in January 2011 by the amalgamation
of the Horndon Society and the Horndon Community Forum. It continues to promote conservation
and enhancement of the village, for the benefit of those who live and work here and
those who visit. This may be by direct schemes such as tree planting and street clean-ups.
The Society/Forum also acts as a conduit through which Villagers can voice their
opinions and concerns to the local authority and to other relevant bodies. Ward
Councillors and representatives of the Neighbourhood Police and Horndon School often
attend meetings. The Society/Forum also promotes opportunities for people to get
together and foster a positive sense of community by organising events such as talks,
exhibitions, quizzes and as the parent group behind the annual Feast and Fayre.
The Society can to help to influence larger issues as it is affiliated to other organisations
such as Civic Voice and the Council for the Protection of Rural Essex.
Membership is free to all who live and work in Horndon. Meetings are held at 8 p.m.
in the Woolmarket on the first Wednesday of each month. Everyone is welcome to attend
and the Society/Forum offers open discussion on local concerns.
