Frome needs more community meeting spaces

The Bennett Centre, set in the heart of Frome, has been serving the community since it became St John’s Church Hall in 1928, but the building is no longer up to date and we are aware that it could offer more than its one big hall. So we are redeveloping the Centre to offer four meeting spaces and at the same time bring its facilities up to modern-day standards.

We are now more than three-quarters of the way through the redevelopment, thanks to superb support from the local community, grant-making bodies and our army of volunteer labour. The most recent work has involved installing the main toilets, and we also now have the funds in place to install a basic kitchen which will be up and running before the Frome Festival in July.

The next stage is to complete the flooring and lighting on the ground floor (the Cloisters) so that this space can be made available for use by local community groups. Any help towards raising the £10k needed for this would be very gratefuly received!

Thank you very much indeed for your help.
