Sustainable Frome is a group of people, living in and around Frome, who are concerned about the impact of our current way of life on the planet and would like to do something about it.
We are a Community Interest Company (CIC), with a small group of directors who are responsible for making sure we meet our commitments to the membership. Membership is free and there is a broad membership as we want to be as inclusive as possible. Anyone who signs up for the newsletter becomes a member. We currently have around 460 members. Members are obliged to pay up to £1 each if the organisation is wound up with liabilities, but there are no other obligations.
Anyone can join in most of what we do – such as dressing as bees for the carnival, planting out seedlings in the Incredible Edible beds or coming along to the Apple Day celebrations – whether they are a member of not. We hold an Annual General Meeting once a year. Follow this link to sign up for our email newsletter, and you will receive information about our events and meetings.
As a CIC, Sustainable Frome must have a set of ‘objects’. These are our guiding principles and they are set out on their own web page.
