Frome Town Council is looking for local businesses to get involved in its bid to get Walkers are Welcome accreditation for Frome. Project Officer Emma Parker is inviting companies based in the town to get in touch to find out the benefits of being part of the scheme.

“As part of our accreditation journey we’ll be sharing information about Frome and encouraging people to visit. Some of the best Walkers are Welcome destinations have had a significant impact on the economy. Winchcombe in Gloucestershire say they have measured a 40% increase in footfall in the town,” she explained.

“Other Walkers are Welcome towns give supporting businesses a free listing and link on their website. Bradford on Avon Walkers are Welcome run a three day walking festival that now attracts around 250 people.

“Our main priority now is to raise awareness of the scheme, collect signatures to show support and invite interested people to join our steering group.”

With good support already from individuals and groups in the town, Emma is now keen to hear from more businesses. Anyone interested in finding out how their business can get involved please email Emma at Frome Town Council.
