Issue 347 – Community Fair calling all active citizens!

Are you interested in volunteering opportunities and becoming actively involved in society? Frome Town Council is holding a Community Fair on Sunday 11th March from 10.00am to 4.00pm in the Cheese and Grain where many of the town’s community groups and organisations will be present.

Frome is always on the look out for people that are willing to give up a small amount of time to help make Frome a better place to live and work. More of these good citizens are needed!
The Community Fair will give people the opportunity to learn about local community organisations and voluntary activities going on in the town. The town council is also keen to update its database of useful contacts and local people with skills, expertise and interests in different areas. The fair will give people the chance to register their details with the council for sharing with other like-minded organisations.
Cllr Toby Eliot said, “The Community Fair is the first visible step towards the town council’s stated aim of increased community involvement. As with the new approach to town council working parties, we’re looking to Frome’s existing expertise to help improve the life and environment of the town.
“The fair is an opportunity for the community groups that serve Frome to meet, inspire and engage each other and, potentially, discover opportunities to work together. As importantly, the Community Fair offers everyone in Frome the chance to learn who does what in the town and where they can get involved.
“I’d urge everyone with a spare ten minutes on March 11th to spend them in the Cheese and Grain discovering new ways to connect with, or become more deeply involved in Frome life. Underneath all its other functions, the Community Fair provides the opportunity to understand where Frome’s strengths lie, what expertise exists and who does what in the town. This is vital information for all the organisations who want to see the whole community making successful decisions about the future of our town.”
