Sorry to all of you who would still like to enter our competition to win tickets to the London Handball Cup. We thought that as sponsors of a team GB player we were allowed to offer some tickets to our customers, fans and followers but we have just been informed by the London 2012 Organising Committee that is not the case. Unfortunately we are having to end the competition early so have removed this post.
If we can come up with a similarly fabulous prize in future you will be the first to know. In the meantime we’re very sorry for the disappointment and for not being able to offer you the chance to cheer on the team!
The team at Forman’s has just returned from watching team GB v Angola in their first match of the Handball Tournament. We had no idea what a fast paced and exciting game handball actually is!!
Firstly the Olympic Park is absolutely breath-taking even though it’s still some way off completion, and we had a beautiful, clear, crisp sunny day for our first walk through it.
We’re still not too sure of all the handball rules,but it was a nail biting match with us beating the Angolans 22-20, one of the goals having been scored by our very own Louise Jukes whom Formans has sponsored. I cheered myself hoarse and look forward to team GB’s progress through the competition over the next few days ending with the finals on Sunday 27th November.
The atmosphere was incredible and it really gave me an idea of just how amazing the 2012 Olympic Games are going to be.
If I had any reservations about us hosting the Games and the cost they were all blown away in one thrilling match.
Go team GB!! Woohoo!!
If you’re thinking of buying a Christmas hamper this year then do please have a read of this review of a sample hamper we put together of some of our favourite foods. You can be sure all our hampers are just as good!
Months of debate over planning has finally been resolved and resulted in Forman’s being granted planning for a temporary venue next to our existing site where we will create ‘London’s Living Room‘ for the duration of the 2012 Olympic Games.
Our new site will house a giant ‘sofa’ building with space for restaurants, outdoor events, a media centre, hospitality venues and much more. An opportunity for people to come and enjoy the atmosphere of the games even if not lucky enough to have a ticket to enter the park itself. We hope it will also attract investment to Fish Island in the longer term and eventually be redeveloped to provide a new cultural centre for our area.

We sent food blogger gastronomy domine one of our Christmas hampers to review, click on the image below and have a read of what she thought.
“Forman and Field hit it out of the park with this hamper. There wasn’t a single dud in there. Every item in the hamper was something I’d consider ordering off my own bat. And there is nothing nicer than opening up a beautiful wicker box like this to rummage through on the living room floor, finding surprise after surprise. If there is a greedy somebody you love very much this Christmas, I can’t think of a better present. The hampers are packaged with ice and insulation, so they arrive fridge-cold.”
There’s a lovely piece on our smoked salmon in the latest delicious magazine. An interview with Lance Forman explains our process and why we think ours is a hundred times better than a mass-produced product. There’s also a similar interview with Paul from Kelly Bronze Turkeys who supply our birds and lots of lovely Christmas recipes so it’s well worth picking up a copy.
