Let’s get Frome covered – check in on your 5 nearest neighbours

In current times, we all need to be there for each other and over the coming weeks, community will be essential.

We’re asking all Frome residents to make contact with their five nearest neighbours.

The idea is super simple – check in with your five nearest neighbours, give them your number, make sure you have theirs and know that they can call you if you are needed.

We have created a handy leaflet (which includes some FAQs) which we will be distributing to every household in Frome.  It contains five forms for you to jot down your details and pop them safely through your neighbour’s door.  You can give them your number, make sure you have theirs and know that they can call you if you are needed.

If you feel able to widen this and create a neighbourhood group then that is great!

If you yourself are in need of help and support, and don’t feel able to reach out to your neighbours, then follow our FAQ’s or call us on 01373 465 757.

And remember even if you are isolated at home there are ways that you can continue to support your neighbours, your family, your community – keep spirits up and most of all talk to each other.

It might feel odd to start with but this is our new normal for now and our strongest means of support.

Look out for the leaflet in the next few days, you will also see in the next edition of the Frome Times and you can find a download the leaflet here.
