FROGS: Frome Recreation and Open Ground Supporters


FROGS is a community group of volunteers encouraging the use protection and enjoyment of outdoor spaces in and around Frome. We want to make sure that the green spaces are safe and inviting for people of all ages to enjoy.

We welcome anyone who is interested in the outdoors and making sure that we enjoy it and look after it.

FROGS have organised several bat- and bird-box building days, as well as wildlife walks. Events are also organised in the parks including along the Welshmill Greenway and in Victoria Park. They have raised funds for improvements to Frome's parks and open spaces.
