43 delegates from Somerset, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire towns attended this invigorating event on 15th October, organised by Vision4Frome.
After some took a tour of the town, Charles Wood (Chair, Vision4Frome) gave a presentation on the progress and influence of Frome’s Community Plan; many towns will recognise some of the challenges.
