A series of activities and events led to the launch of the Home in Frome book ‘Working Memories’
Working Memories book launch
Over 60 colourful banners representing the industries of Frome were made by local people in a series of workshops at Sun Street Chapel during September and October 2012. Banner processions made their way through the streets of Frome, with drums and trumpets, heralding the launch of "Working Memories" on Saturday, October 27th, 2012.
Working Memories was typeset by Bath’s Mill Stream Books and printed by Butler Tanner and Dennis. The book was launched on the weekend of 27th and 28th October 2012 with a series of public events as well as a party for the contributors to the book at the Cheese & Grain on the Sunday.
Each contributor was presented with a copy of the book wrapped in a special cover made by school children and featuring pictures depicting stories from the book.
The publication of the book was made possible through a grant from the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund and a generous loan from Frome Society for Local Study.
