The third night of below zero temperatures can prove fatal for rough sleepers. When this is predicted by the Met office the cold weather shelter in Frome will open and provide the much needed warmth, food, bedding, clothing, advice and sleep for rough sleepers during these extreme low temperatures. Sixty volunteers have come forward to offer their help, they will have training and support for this challenging and rewarding work. Up until this year the nearest Cold Weather shelter has been in Wells some twenty miles away so this shelter in Frome will provide a much needed local service.
