Set up as part of the Millenium Celebrations the group was launched, The Golden Jubilee of Elizabeth II was the international celebration held in 2002 marking the 50th anniversary of the accession of Queen Elizabeth II to the throne.
To mark this occasion the group arranged for a celebration at the White House.
The local children at school received commemerative medals.
In June 2015 the Initiative Group applied for
and was successful in becoming part of the
Coalfields Community Futures Programme this
involved other Community Groups and together
we formed a Steering Group. This has now
resulted in the completion of a community wide
consultation and development of a village plan to
be used as a guide to where our community
wants to develop over the years. As part of this we worked to create
a Forth and District Development Trust to support
the outcomes of the plan. Within Forth there are
several good local groups working for the benefit
of the community. They are all represented on
the Development Trust Steering Group.
Through a lot of hard work by the community, Forth have been lucky enough to win several awards over the years
