Thornbury Radio celebrates anniversary with cash giveaway

Thornbury Radio has celebrated its third birthday by giving away free cash.

The community radio station ran a competition for one listener to win £105.10, to match its frequency.

The FM service is designed to cover Thornbury and surrounding villages – including Alveston, Olveston, Tytherington, Oldbury-on-Severn, Leyhill, Wickwar, Bagstone and Iron Acton.

In addition, Thornbury Radio will start broadcasting on DAB from September 2024.

Chris Criddle, weekday breakfast show host and Director said; “The station is going from strength to strength with such great positive feedback, more volunteers wanting to get involved and the station being recognised by more people than ever.

“We are attending more events this year and we are told that we are doing a great job by our community.

“With our plans for launching on DAB in September 2024 we hope to make it even easier to listen to Thornbury Radio.”
