Close your street

Last year, the Trinity Community Group closed Selwood Road for an afternoon and hosted a street party; it was a wonderful community event that brought together neighbours and allowed the children to play out safely.

Selwood Street Party

Following the success of this, we are supporting residents who wish to hold similar community events; whether this is a street party, a fete or a children’s playing out day.  It can take time and some planning to hold such events, so we are hosting a free training session to help you do just that, making the process as simple as possible. The training is open to anyone who is interested in closing their own street or helping others to do the same.

Mayor of Frome, Mark Dorrington said, “Closing your street to traffic for a few hours can help bring your community together. It gives you a chance to get to know your neighbours better and lets children play safely outside their own homes. We have heard the wonderful feedback from the successful parties held last year so this training is perfect if you would like to hold a similar event in your neighbourhood.”

The training is from 6:30-8:30pm on March 2nd at Frome Town Hall. Come along and talk to people that have closed their street, get their top tips, and how we can help. Please secure your free place by booking online at: https://www.tickettailor.com/events/frometowncouncil/341937
