The People’s Budget: Great event idea?

Do you have a good idea for an event?

Peoples Budget: Events launches again after a successful series of events delivered from the PB vote last March.

A panel of local residents will once again be asked to vote on events pitched to them in March by local community groups.  The applications process for Peoples Budget: Events is now open and local not for profit groups will be able to pitch for up to £10000 of £25000 available for events over the coming year in Frome.

2017 saw successful pitches events from seven very worthy projects that received funding from £500 to £10000.  The projects, which have been well spread through out the year were the School Travel Challenge, Fair housing for Frome, Cycle Powered Cinema, The Big Disability Diversity Day, Word Up! Frome FM Party in the Park, and finally the Christmas Lantern Procession.

Anyone over the age of 10 can apply to be on the panel, under 18s must be accompanied by a responsible adult. You must live in Frome and be able to come and spend Saturday morning at the Football Club on 17th March from 9.30 – 12.00 pm.  Here you will listen to the pitches from the community groups and vote on each project.  Lunch is then offered and you are invited to hear the results which will be announced at 12.30pm


The closing date for registration is 5pm Wednesday 28th February. Please register by sending you name, age and your postcode here putting People’s Panel in the subject line or filling in the survey below.
