Peter Macfadyen and his friends gathered in a pub one evening and decided to create an independent party called Independents for Frome (IfF). This community mind set resulted in a small Somerset town voting against traditional party politics and gave a coalition of independents control of all 17 seats on its council. 

Since IiF has been in power the town has experienced many positive changes including a much improved music venue, a share shop, community fridge, various food co-ops, the mens shed, people led support groups, mentoring services for young adults and many other exciting community led initiatives. 

As the crucible of ‘flatpack democracy’, Frome is leading a small-scale political revolution – and it’s one that is spreading.
