Forty Fabulous Years of Forum!
2022 is a very special year for us at Forum. We are celebrating our 40th Anniversary of being an award-winning, independent, family-run jeweller!
We want to share our joy by giving back to the community that has supported us so loyally over the last 40 years.
The Forum team will be carrying out 40 Random Acts of Kindness from March to November to say thank you to the local community and businesses, and will involve surprises such as giving out flowers, jewellery, and gift cards, or thanking some of our community heroes with something delicious for their hard work. There are lots of other amazing surprises which we have to keep secret for now!

Iain & Susan Munro started Forum Jewellers in 1982 from a tiny shop in the small market town of Blandford Forum (hence the name!) in Dorset.
Iain had been in the jewellery business since 1966 when he first joined H Samuel, at that time still a family run business. Subsequent promotions moved him around the UK so when the opportunity presented itself to return to their home county, Iain and Sue were both keen to have a go at running their own business. They moved to Blandford in 1982 and, after five days of decoration, alterations and refitting, Forum Jewellers opened its doors and the new shop prospered.
After several years of trading, Iain & Sue felt they were ready for a new challenge, opening a second shop in Dorset. In May 1998, Forum Jewellers of Broadstone opened its doors to a warm reception from the locals. In 2000, their daughter Helen joined the already well-established team and the difficult decision to sell the Blandford store was made in order to grow the potential of the Broadstone store. Forum has continued to grow and thrive and is now a well-known and respected local name, renowned for excellent customer service and quality products.
