Thornbury community radio begins transmissions with increased coverage area

Thornbury FM

Local community radio station Thornbury FM has begun its latest month-long broadcasting period using a re-positioned transmitter that extends its coverage as far as Bradley Stoke.

The station currently broadcasts for two 28-day sessions a year, but is campaigning for a permanent broadcasting licence that would allow it to transmit throughout the year.

Broadcasts can be heard on 87.7 FM between Monday 2nd November and Sunday 29th November.

The station is currently running a competition to choose a new name for itself that better reflects its increased coverage area. Suggestions can be made online until 14th November.

Plans are meanwhile afoot for Bradley Stoke to have its own community radio station – the Bradley Stoke Community Radio Association was recently awarded a £1,500 grant by South Gloucestershire Council, via the Southern Brooks Area Forum.
