Independents for Frome (IfF) is a new way of working for local politics.
We’re not about parties or arguments or national issues. We field candidates from all backgrounds and with a range of different opinions. What unites us and enables us to work together is that we all care about one thing – what’s best for Frome.
IfF operates primarily at election times. It’s a way to enable truly independent candidates to stand – and win – in the local elections in Frome. The councillors elected are then able to work without party political ideology to make the best decisions they can for the town without a ‘whip’ or formal leadership.
In 2011, our first year of operation, IfF took control of Frome Town Council and in May 2015 all 17 IfF candidates were elected. They continue to use the Ways of Working which guided the selection process and which underpin our open, positive and constructive approach to local politics. You can see what they’ve been doing on the Frome Town Council website, and we’ve also listed some of the achievements we’re most proud of on here as well.
All our candidates for the 2019 elections have now been chosen, but if you would like to support our work and help the next slate of candidates get elected, we would love to hear from you. IfF needs help with everything from delivering leaflets to working on our social media presence, or even just having a board in your front garden.
You can also see what our candidates are up to on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
