New app to welcome visitors to Frome

FROMEis developing its very own app to help visitors make the most of all the town has to offer.

An ‘app’ – or ‘application’ – is a software programme which people can access via a smartphone to get instant information.

A working group of the Frome Town Team is in the process of developing an app for Frome. It is based around a number of themes and routes to help visitors make the most of a visit, or explore the town remotely from home. Gathering content for the themes – which include heritage, arts, retail, youth, active and Frome tunnels – is nearly complete.

The town team says, “Funding has been raised through Somerset County Council’s Creative Industries Development Fund and Frome Town Council, along with support in kind from a number of individuals and organisations led by Creative Frome. The project is a great example of the town team ethos to bring together people with the relevant experience and a passion for Frome to make improvements to the town.”
