Fly tipping is still prevalent in the lanes surrounding Frome. Regular patrols both during the day and after dusk are carried out. We encourage anyone who is hiring private waste disposal for garden or building waste, to check the contractor has a waste carriers license. Do your bit to prevent your waste ending up on your lanes. If your contractor can not show you a waste carriers license and is offering waste removal please report them to trading standards and the Police on 101.
Where practically possible lock and block your gates and field entrances. Logs, boulders and ditches can all help prevent access to the fields.

I attended Mole Valley Farmers in Standerwick with my colleague, where we had a bicycle marking event. We introduced ourselves to villagers and exchanged details. The day was a huge success.
