Showfield Spectacular a success

show-field-event-2016-taken-by-staffOn Saturday 3rd September the new outdoor gym equipment at the Old Showfield on Rodden Road was officially launched. Despite the cold, wind and rain, over twenty stalls were on site offering games, food and fun.

People of all ages made fruit kebabs, created cycling art work and practised circus skills. Thanks to everyone who came along, and made it such a great day.

Emma Parker, event organiser said “The weather was not on our side but everyone remained positive and had good things to say about the equipment.”

APE project who came over from Bristol said “The weather was pretty awful but we had a great day none the less and fell in love with Frome, what a beautiful town!”
