Frome’s Great Big Green Week starts this week!

FROME’S first Great Big Green Week launches this week.

From this Saturday 18th to Sunday 26th September, Frome will see a plethora of events, hosted by Frome Town Council, celebrating how the local community is taking action to tackle climate change and protect our green spaces.

The town council say, “The Great Big Green Week is a nationwide event and here in Frome there will be a range of events taking place including an exciting new live show from the Siren Poets, ‘We Feed…Frome’ at Station Approach, a special event from OpenStoryTellers and the return of ‘Improve Don’t Move’.

“There will also be walks, forest school sessions, film screenings, workshops, exhibitions and a Plastic Free Tea in the Park which will see students from Frome College perform their ‘Later…with’ show as well as giving people the chance to find out about the many climate-friendly projects that are happening in the town.

“The Great Big Green Week is a great precursor to the major UN climate summit, COP26, being held in the UK in November, where politicians will set out how they plan to fulfil their promise of reducing greenhouse gases across the world.   

“The week provides the perfect opportunity to show decision makers that people from all walks of life, here in Frome and across the country, are stepping up to take action on climate change, setting the stage for the most ambitious climate summit ever.

“As well as enjoying the events on offer in September, Frome Town Council are also inviting local residents to create art, poetry and stories to show their love for our green spaces, our planet and for the action we want to see from our leaders to protect it.   

“The artwork will be displayed in Frome Town Hall throughout Great Big Green Week and will be used to deliver Frome’s message to the leaders of COP26. Creations can be taken to the Town Hall anytime between now and the 24th September.”
