It’s the penultimate edition of The Frome Independent this year

The nights are drawing in, Bonfire Night is just around the corner, we’ve dusted off our thermals and are layering up to keep cosy! Pumpkins, toffee apples and fireworks aside, present buying season is rapidly approaching, so why not head along to The Frome Independent on Sunday 6th November to get organised early?

Lots of our traders offer special deals on market days, so it’s the perfect opportunity to get festive gifts sorted – and you can feel all warm and fuzzy knowing that you’ve helped an independent producer, rather than a global brand!

This winter more than any it’s so important to look after each other, and that includes all creatures great and small.  Local wildlife group The Wild Bunch will be joining us outside the library where visitors can make bird feeders using apples, sticks and sunflower seeds – the ideal low-cost gift for your garden and nature loving buddies. There will also be examples of bird and bat boxes and info about how to make one at home.

Loop:Frome will be on hand too, to introduce visitors to TFI to their community regeneration project that transforms food waste into a complete living compost, redirecting previously lost nutrients back into the Earth.

Somerset Wildlife Trust are coming along on Sunday with lots of natural wonders to wow us with – beautiful birds nests, skulls and more – plus info about how they are looking after some of Somerset’s most iconic landscapes and special wildlife; restoring, strengthening and connecting habitats and green spaces so nature can recover and thrive in the future.

We’ve also got another super line up for you on our Market Place Stage this month:

11am – Out of Order

11.45 am – The Fab Twins
