A statement from Frome Times

Story posted on

To all readers

We are sad to announce that due to last night’s new restrictions
introduced by the Prime Minister, we will have to
temporarily cease production of Frome Times. 

Our latest edition – which our wonderful staff had worked on right up to the last minute – was printed but sadly cannot now be delivered.

But it is still available online to read at the link below.

We would urge everyone who can, to read the online edition which contains lots of advice and contact numbers for support groups. Please use these – and pass the information on to elderly/vulnerable people that you know (by phone only, of course). 

Keep visiting our website; we will be working hard to bring you news and updates including news about the fantastic work still being done in our community to help the most vulnerable.

We are a family-run business and we would like to pay tribute to our wonderful team, including our deliverers who were waiting and willing to bring you this latest edition.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support over the years – long may it continue! Together, we will come through this and emerge from it as a stronger community than ever before.

Please follow the Government’s advice and stay indoors
unless absolutely necessary.

Look after each other and stay safe.

Ian and Susan Drew, Kate Drew and Joe McCann
and all the team at Frome Times.

    Many thanks to you and your wonderful team for continuing to publish the Frome Times online to ensure it remains the lifeline it has always been.

    May we also thank the Independents for Frome Town Council for its foresight in purchasing Rodden Meadow which is also proving a lifeline to those of us under lockdown without gardens. Cowslips and Blackthorn were in flower yesterday, a few bees, lots of birds and we noticed mugwumps and small snails hunkering down in the crevices of trees, sheltering from the icy wind!

    Dear Frome Times. I’m sorry that for the present you are unable to publish.
    However I think you should know that this government are conning the public into believing that they will protect the NHS. You will be shocked to know that in the recently published Trade Bill there is no mention of protection for our NHS. This is insulting in particular to our dedicated NHS staff.
    Instead of a pay rise and a stronger NHS we’ll get more US companies sucking profit from our ill-health and misery.
    It is not too late to amend this bill and I would like to call on David Warburton MP to commit to amending the Trade Bill so that our health service can be protected from more privatisation through trade deals.
    I look forward to a positive response from our local MP.
    Yours sincerely
