Frome Allotment Association
Frome Allotment Association was formed in 1991. It runs the allotments on behalf of the people of the town. The eight sites are leased from Frome Town Council. FAA is a self-managing allotment association, funded by member subscriptions and any grants it can secure from the public or charitable sectors.
There are eight sites within the town: Welshmill, North Parade, Muriel Jones Fields at Birchill Lane, which has 106 plots plus 10 raised beds for less able members, Orchard Street, Singers Knoll, Queens Road, Cranmore View, which has 6 plots, and Mendip View.
In total 247 plots are under cultivation. The sites vary in size from the largest at Muriel Jones Fields at Birchill Lane with 106 plots, to the smallest at Cranmore View which has just 6.
The waiting list for a plot is around 350.
If you are interested in an allotment and would like to be added to the waiting list please let us know
We believe you should know what data we collect from you and how we use it. You should also have control over it.
