A Summer of fun and food from Purple Elephant and Fair Frome

TWO local organisations which support families in our local community to equal access to food and enriching activities, Purple Elephant and Fair Frome, are busily gearing up for the summer holidays. 

“At Fair Frome, 300 grocery bags of food essentials are being packed and delivered to schools in time for the end of term for families to take home,” explained Lenka Grimes at Fair Frome. “Over 300 healthy packed lunches are being prepared ready to deliver to different venues around the town in the first five weeks of the holidays.   

“In an ongoing partnership between Purple Elephant and Fair Frome, families are referred to book on to a choice of 13 sessions offered over three days per week for five weeks of the holidays, and they take home a packed lunch – unless it’s a cooking session where they make their own!  

“Activities at the summer sessions include sports, art and crafts, cookery, dance and fun science. Support workers are on hand to help families. There will also be a Community Lunch event at Tower View Park with a huge inflatable, activities, games, magic and a BBQ. At the sessions, families also get to take home an activity pack full of fun things to do like treasure and nature hunts and physical activities.  

“We are so grateful to all our volunteers, especially all our young people that are helping, as part of their Duke of Edinburgh award, work experience or our youth programme – we couldn’t do all this without you. Thank you.”
