Lots of fun at Frome’s Playday

The rain kept away and the visitors came to play at Frome Town Council’s Playday yesterday.  Hundreds of fun seekers came to check out the free activities and get involved with the merriment in Victoria Park and Mary Baily.

Some truly stunning dens were built in the glade, along with some nature inspired graffiti, playful poetry and building carts for the wacky races – all brought out visitors’ playful creativity.

And if sport was more your thing it was great to see so many getting involved with the Rugbytots taster sessions, the shoot the hoop basketball competition, tennis games not to mention some skills being put on show at the skate track – Young Somerset organised the Skate Jam which was accompanied by DJ Nina who brought a festival vibe to the event.

Mayor of Frome Andy Wrintmore who turned 29 on the day said: “What a great way to spend part of my birthday! I had so much fun, and it was great to see so many of Frome residents, young and old, laughing and having fun too. And the day proved that you’re never too old to hula hoop or build a den!”

If there was something you would have loved to see at Playday or something you tried out and would love to do again, please do let Frome Town Council know by completing their short Choose Play survey https://www.frometowncouncil.gov.uk/choose-play
