Steve Tanner – Why I’m Standing

This has made me smile because as far as I am concerned this is one of the whole points of  IfF: we attract people from all walks of life and all ages, all linked by a common goal , to get the best for Frome.I don’t think of myself as a political person and the way big party politics has played out over the past few years would have tried the patience of a saint. None of the major parties focuses on truly local people their policies are mass-produced.   I strongly believe local decisions should be made locally, by local people, and not have to be ratified by faceless party officials hundred of miles away.   I want to do some thing in Frome for Frome. This is why I joined the IfF and this is why I am proud to be standing for IFF in the local elections.  I will do my best to improve the lives of everyone in Frome irrespective of who runs Westminster.

Care Home Canvassing

Anne Hills and Anita Collier are both passionate about making sure that the voices of elderly people are heard, so that they have their needs catered for by the council.  As a first step they are liaising with all the care homes in Frome to ensure that any resident who wants to, is able to vote. “I really want to make sure that no one gets excluded from their right to vote,” said Ann.  “I’ve contacted each care home in the town, and we will offer assistance to them and their residents if they need help with the registration form.” Click on the Gov.uk image to register Sign up to help the campaign and receive updates Sign up Promoted by T Eliot of 28 Broadway Frome BA11 3HA on behalf of Independents for Frome. © Independents for Frome 2018 Facebook Twitter...
