The Cheese and Grain on Sunday 12 April 4pm-8pm.
Cllr Peter Macfadyen, Independent Mayor of Frome proposed at the Frome Town Council meeting on 5 November to hold a Democracy Day in advance of the national and local elections in May next year.
Peter said, “In keeping with this Council’s aim of expanding participation and engagement, it is proposed that a Democracy Day is held on the afternoon of Sunday 12 April 2015. The intention is to capture popular interest and cover the full range of options open to electors. It is not proposed that this day will substitute for, but rather complement, other campaigning planned by candidates in the run up to the elections.”
It was agreed that all Prospective Parliamentary Candidates and all candidates for Frome wards in the Town and District elections will be invited to attend. The Town Clerk has been charged with organising the event to ensure political neutrality.
Please make a note of the event in your diaries today and there will be more information to follow.
