Lockdown shopping guide

Now, more than ever, our independent retailers need our support.  We have a fantastic range of shops in Frome and despite the lockdown, many of them will still be operating, offering online sales, local delivery, click and collect or telephone orders.  Scroll through the retailers below to see how you can shop locally during lockdown.

Over the coming weeks, we’ll also be running a series of Christmas shopping features, so please check back to see what great gifts are available from our virtual high street.
