We hold Sustainable Frome meetings on the first Thursday of every month and they are a great way to meet others and learn more about what's happening with sustainable projects, groups and campaigns in Frome.

If you want to get your own project going, the best way to kick things off is to come to a meeting and tell people about your idea. You can ask for volunteers or support or help in how to get things going - you can be sure people will listen and offer suggestions.

There's no set format for a meeting: sometimes we'll have a speaker or show a film, and there's almost always a lively discussion. Take a look at some past meetings to get an idea of the variety of topics we've explored.

We usually start with shared vegetarian/vegan food and chat, then move on to notices, before the main part of the meeting.

Future topics

Ideas for future meetings that came out of recent discussions include:

  • Saxonvale
  • Brexit planning
  • Reaching out beyond Frome
  • Transport
  • Housing
  • Energy
  • Economics
  • Trees
  • Food security
  • River Frome
  • Update from Plastic Free Frome
  • Update from Frome Uprising

If you are passionate about any of the above topics and want to help co-host a meeting to inform, discuss or mobilise then please come along to the next meeting, or email info@sustainablefrome.org.uk


Next meeting

Thursday 2nd July, 8pm -- Online

This is a general meeting with no speaker or presentation.

We expect to talk about coming out of lockdown, moving forward and life post-COVID.

There are many projects ongoing in and around Frome but some are on hold or struggling due to the pandemic. There will be updates on the work of the Town Council and other groups, and we'll explore what projects we can get on with and ways of doing that.

The meeting will take place online, using Zoom. See the latest newsletter for the access link.
