Frome’s Missing Links, which works towards linking central Frome with the Colliers Way at Great Elm with a traffic-free multi-user path, is inviting people to its AGM to hear about progress over the last year and a new fundraising campaign. 

The AGM (annual General Meeting) will be at 7pm at Frome Town Hall, Christchurch Street West on Tuesday 28th May. All are welcome. 

The event serves as an opportunity to catch up on what has happened over the last 12 months, as work has been going on almost every week, reducing the distance that is ‘missing’ between Frome and the Colliers Way route to Radstock. Volunteers have put in a lot of work on the section of path at Great Elm, where there is a stone surface, putting in fences, seating, improving access and planting trees. At Whatcombe Fields, there is also regular work maintaining the path and the hedging alongside it and preparing for the next stage. 

Fundraising will also be discussed at the event, as Frome’s Missing Links is about to start a campaign for funds for surfacing the stretch from Elliots Lane to Buckland Bridge. The path in this area has been used widely by dog walkers, runners and many others since it opened, proving to be a popular way for people to access the countryside. To make this section fully accessible to all, FML is hoping to upgrade the surface to tarmac. 

“We would love to see lots of members of the community at our AGM, as we reflect on the progress made and set our sights on the journey ahead,” said Richard Ackroyd, chair of trustees at Frome’s Missing Links. “With the help of the people of Frome and surrounding villages, we have the potential to create new routes to connect us and keep us active.” 

There will be an opportunity for people to ask questions at the event and find out more about other ideas for linking Frome to the surrounding area. 

Refreshments will be available for a donation. There is no fee to attend.
