Sun made Frome Lions Summer Fete shine

FROME Lions held their annual Summer Fete at Frome’s Victoria Park on Saturday 8th June. 

A glorious sunny day brought the public out to enjoy not only the weather but the many attractions and good causes on show.

The afternoon festivities were opened by Frome’s Charisma Twirlers who were double booked and had another event to go to. Sound was provided by Pete Dayman-Johns and music by the Frome Youth Band. Lots of Lions train rides, burgers, hot dogs and teas and cakes were consumed as the spectators enjoyed the weather.

Crowd favourites were the Dog Training Club with a display in the arena and a Punch and Judy show. Many also enjoyed the bouncy castle, swing boats, face painting and other charity stalls spread around the park. The Frome’s Carnival Queen’s with all their attendants had an enjoyable tour around the fete.

The Lions estimate that after costs just under £1,400 will be added to their Charitable Trust Account to help lots of needy people and causes locally. The Lions also feel that to see so many smiling people enjoying the atmosphere of this community event was as rewarding.

The Lions would like to take this opportunity to thank all people involved in making this event possible. For more information about the Frome Lions Club, please visit the website at
