A good group of youngsters from the college Eco Group come to meetings.

Frome Recreation and Open Ground Supporters is an independent public body. It was established in July 2005 and aims to provide opportunities for community members to improve and promote the use of, awareness of and care of frome�s green areas in order to make them welcoming, well used, safe and enjoyable environments for all now and in the future.
