New community play area opens in Frome

More than 40 Aster residents had a fun afternoon when a new play area opened in Frome last month.

Adults and children enjoyed riding their bikes and scooters, and playing in a football ‘cage’ at the smart community space in Dorset Close.

Edventure, a local social enterprise, provided free pizzas at the event on Wednesday 13th August, which was organised by Aster Communities.

The play area, which includes attractive graphics such as hopscotch grids, has been developed over the last few months as part of Aster’s recent improvements on the estate.

A grant from an Aster’s neighbourhood panel for Frome has also funded new seating and a picnic bench.

David Allford, Aster’s customer involvement and community development manager for Somerset said, “This new community space was all about providing somewhere safe for youngsters to enjoy playing.

“It was a great afternoon and really helped us to show residents what was available and the fun times that can now be enjoyed by everyone in this new, smart area.”
