Radio station to host open evening for new members

Bradley Stoke Radio New Members' Event

Bradley Stoke Radio is holding an open evening on Thursday (22nd July) for anyone looking to find out more about the town’s new community radio project.

The event, which takes place in the Culbone Suite of the Aztec Hotel & Spa (7pm start), will be an informal get-together for anyone interested in getting involved with the radio station. Members of the Committee will be on hand to discuss all aspects of the project.

The last few weeks have been very busy for Bradley Stoke Radio since their debut presence at the Community Festival in June.

The group’s programme covering the Community Festival was recently broadcast on air on BCfm (Community Radio for Bristol)  and a number of interview podcasts have been published on the station’s own website.

More recently, an interview with Bradley Stoke schoolgirl Abigail Newton Smith, an 8-year-old cerebral palsy sufferer who is hoping to travel to the USA for surgery, has been picked up for broadcast on the BBC.

Julian Okoye, Vice Chair of the Bradley Stoke Community Radio Association (BSCRA) told The Journal that the station is now in the process of seeking grants and sponsorship for the project and getting volunteers on board to chart the group’s next steps.

The enthusiastic Mr Okoye added:

“Our new members’ meeting is a chance for anyone interested in the radio station to learn a bit more about what we are doing, to share their ideas and find how they can be involved.”

“The project is evolving daily and we are excited about the future.”

Thursday’s open evening is kindly sponsored by the Aztec Hotel & Spa and supported by Southern Brooks Community Partnership.
