Carnival’s £1,000 boost for Fair Frome

Story posted on

DURING lockdown, Frome Carnival donated £1,000 raised at last year’s event to support Fair Frome’s work to help the community.

“We wanted to do our bit for the community during lockdown,” said Mandy Morgan on behalf of the carnival committee, “and Fair Frome worked so hard throughout the pandemic to help others.”

Fair Frome chair, Bob Ashford said, “Fair Frome and the services it provides are only as good as the support we receive from the local community.  As such, we would like to take this opportunity to thank the Carnival club and indeed all those others organisations and individuals who have been so generous during these very difficult times.”

This year’s carnival procession, which was due to take place this month on Saturday 26th September, has been postponed until next year because of the Covid-19 pandemic. However, the carnival committee is hopeful that a smaller, Covid-secure event could be held in its place, but details are yet to be confirmed.
