Our Community

Community Groups

The Frome Independent offers many Frome based community initiatives a platform to engage with market goers and promote their activities. Last year we supported the work of the Kindness Festival, Frome Pride, Keep it Frome, Slow Stitch Club, Victoria Park Community Cafe, Window Wanderland, The Wild Bunch and Friends of the River Frome. In addition this year we are working with Frome Festival and Pod Scrapstore as well as hosting Frome’s first ever Pride Parade.
If you are a local community group and you have a great idea for a collaboration to promote your work, email us at [email protected]

Charities

Every month The Frome Independent partners with a different local charity to raise awareness and an opportunity to raise funds, benefitting from the large number of market goers in the town centre. Last year the market supported Bath Cats and Dogs Home, Purple Elephant, Mind in Somerset, Blue Cross, The Royal British Legion, Dorothy House, Fair Frome and Frome Carnival. If you are a local charity and would like to raise funds at The Frome Independent please email us at [email protected]

Our Market Town

Frome has been a market town since before the Norman Conquest, and our mission has always been to retain and celebrate this important aspect of the town’s identity. Frome is full of an amazing array of independent shops, cafes, restaurants and venues. You can explore some of what our town has to offer, including events, visitor attractions and accommodation HERE.
