Friends of the River Frome are a charitable organisation and the only body specifically seeking to improve the river (and river corridor) within the town. We feel passionately about the state of the Somerset River Frome and its surroundings. We work with other community groups and Frome Town Council.
We organise working groups to clean up the river and banks
Provide advice, education and support to make the river a place for recreation (walking, cycling, canoeing, fishing etc)
Improve the ecology by management of invasive species and fish habitat
Provide comment on development within and adjacent to the river corridor
Seek funding and planning to benefit public access and the environment
All are welcome to help in our activities.
Sensible shoes, gloves and enthusiasm
Fresh air, simple exercise, friendship, job satisfaction
