Frome Town Council is delighted to announce that all the community projects that applied for the People’s Budget Town vote will be funded.
With a budget of £10,000, communities across the town, neighbourhoods, schools, or businesses were invited to apply for up to £1,000 for their project. Lots of inspiring location-based applications were received from streets and community groups with a host of exciting project ideas. Along with the funding comes support from Frome Town Council to help deliver the project.
The projects which will be supported include two community bike sheds, one in Innox hill and one with a bin store attached in Whatcombe Terrace, a community bench with a noticeboard at Selwood Crescent, a mural in Trinity Area, a bat and bird box building project, a showcase of Easthill, a den for Critchill, a Keyford neighbourhood community project, a celebration of the 10 years of Welshmill pump, and a project honouring local teacher David Titchener with a community sculpture at Frome Community College.
The projects needed to have community buy in to receive the funding, so all the projects had been listed on the Your Priorities platform, for Frome to view, discuss, comment and support within their individual communities have been canvassed.
Cllr Sheila Gore said: “We are delighted that we are able to fund all of the People’s Budget Town Vote projects. It’s been great to see how this new phase of the People’s Budget has been embraced by communities across Frome and we really look forward to seeing the projects across Frome over the coming months as the projects spring to life.”
