The Discover Frome Information Point is expanding its opening hours by an additional day and is recruiting volunteers to join their friendly team. The hub of local knowledge and information, based within Black Swan Arts on Bridge Street, will now be open on Tuesdays too which means that the team will be available Tuesday to Saturday from 11am-2pm.
As well as details about the events and activities happening in the town, Discover Frome also boasts locally sourced gifts such as prints, books and bags to entice residents and visitors alike. It’s the perfect place to get the information you need from finding a new cycling route, to discovering an exciting new class or simply picking up a bus timetable.
Cllr Ali Barclay said, “It’s wonderful that Discover Frome is proving so popular that we are able to open an extra day each week. Becoming an ambassador for the Information Point is a great opportunity to engage with the local community and help support an important part of our unique town’s offer. Not only that, but volunteering is an opportunity to develop your skills, learn something new and many find it very rewarding.”
