A new local consortium has been formed to bring back local radio back to Thornbury. Thornbury Media Community Interest Company is a not-for-profit venture, formed especially to deliver a new radio station for the area. Behind the idea are Glyn Roylance and David Wrench who were founder members of the original Thornbury FM.
“Thornbury FM proved there was plenty of local talent to produce great local radio” said Glyn. “Although Thornbury has a strong community spirit, it does not have a local radio station to help showcase the town. Commercial stations don’t serve Thornbury, and the BBC stations focus on their regional briefs for Bristol, Gloucester and Somerset. We want to fill that void and play our part in building an even stronger community spirit in Thornbury”.
The radio station is currently in the early stages, examining technical feasibility and business plans. They are looking for people with business skills who would like to get involved to help build a viable organisation. They are also keen to hear from local benefactors who would consider supporting the project and any organisations or businesses that have empty accommodation which could host a small radio studio. If you think you can help, please get in contact!
