Notes to Editors
Stop SGC is a community-led organisation concerned that profit-motivated land financiers could shape the future of Frome without ever being asked to.
The fields of Little Keyford are full of wildlife with many important veteran trees and ancient hedgerows that must be preserved. Once lost they will be gone forever. SGC will be built at the expense of the local community and would change Frome forever.
