Community Toilet Scheme

Mendip District Council provides public facilities in all the major towns in the district. They include accessible toilets, and baby changing facilities.

Public conveniences provided by the District Council in Frome are located at the Market Car Park, in Justice Lane (near the Cheese and Grain).

The Frome Community Toilet Scheme

Frome Town Council initiated The Frome Community Toilet Scheme to provide members of the public with clean, safe and in the majority of cases, accessible toilets in convenient locations across the town. The participating businesses have agreed to let members of the public use their toilet facilities during normal opening hours without the need to make a purchase. The Council offices in Frome Town Hall also offers use of facilities to residents and visitors alike – including level access.

Toilet Twinning

“Toilet Twinning” is an initiative through which two British charities raise funds for toilets in countries where there are few – or none.  Some of the Community Scheme toilets in the town are twinned with ones in Uganda, Cambodia and Ghana (the latter through a local Frome resident who lives and works there).
