Keep Frome Clean

‘The town should be consistently clean and welcoming – with everyone playing their part’

There are lots of people involved in Keeping Frome Clean, including Frome Town Council, Mendip District Council & Somerset County Council.

Our campaign to Keep Frome Clean means organisations working together to make things better.

It also means everybody doing their bit, whether that’s businesses sweeping outside of their shops; people putting litter in bins or community groups tidying unloved areas.

To support and promote the campaign we set up the Keep Frome Clean Panel.

Chaired by Councillor Richard Ackroyd, the Panel met 4 times between July 2015 and January 2016. The Panel also introduced October Watch, a month of dedicated reporting on the condition & cleanliness of the town.

And click here to read the Panel’s full report, including Recommendations.

This report was discussed at Council on 20 January 2016 – when the Panel’s Recommendations were all approved & agreed.

Coming soon! We’ll be keeping everyone up to date with progress on the Recommendations using this handy table.

Get involved – Four Incredibly Easy ways to help Keep Frome Clean today

  • Put litter in bins. It’s what they’re there for!
  • Pick up after other people. Yes they’re being lazy, but it’ll only take a few seconds to put that crisp packet in the bin. And afterwards you can be extra proud knowing you’ve done your bit for yourself and for the town!
  • Clean up after your dog. And remember bagged dog’s mess can go in any litter bin.
  • No butts! Come on smokers – put them in the bin when they’re out
