During the pandemic many of us walked and cycled more as part of our daily exercise, for some that became a habit and it’s been great to see so many residents being active around our wonderful town.
Frome Town Council is encouraging active travel as part of everyday life, and in order to deliver this is creating a Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP) which has been funded by Somerset County Council’s Climate Emergency Fund.
Cllr Lizzie Boyle said: “We’re grateful for the funding and once we have created the LCWIP the benefits will be tenfold. We’ll be able to support the economy of the town by providing safe alternative travel options, plus enabling short journeys by making cycling and walking safer and more convenient and accessible. Active travel not only improves health and wellbeing of individuals but also tackles climate change and improves Frome’s air quality. We want residents to be part of the plan and welcome all views, why not come along to one of the workshops and help shape Frome’s active travel future?”
We are inviting anyone with an interest in Frome to get involved with the project and future plans by hosting an online workshop on Thursday 12th August from 7:30pm to 9pm. The session will then be repeated on Thursday 23rd September (7:30pm to 9pm). Find out more and register here.
