More than 500 people celebrated the official opening of the new Welshmill Park in Frome.

There is now a new bike pump track, play equipment and seating at the park.

Frome Recreation and Open Grounds Supporters (FROGS) invited people for a picnic and demonstration of the bike track with activities laid on by Wansdyke Play Association.

The play tower and bike track was opened by Mayor Pippa Goldfinger and later there was a demonstration of riding skills by Rowan Sorrell of Back-on-Track, with music from Graham S.

Chairman of FROGS Phil Birch said: "We are delighted that such a huge number of people turned out to celebrate the wonderful new development at Welshmill.

"So many helped us to get the Community Spaces Lottery funding that paid for the improvements and the day was a great opportunity to say thank you to them all."

Together with Frome Town Council, FROGS are hoping to secure more facilities and are asking people what they would like to see for the next phase of the development.

Mr Birch added: "If we are successful in obtaining more funding, we will need to know what the people of Frome want. Ideas so far have been for more play equipment, more seating and for improvements to the woodland area. "
