Community radio station seeking funds to get on air
THE team behind a community radio station for Thornbury and surrounding villages needs to raise funds to be able to broadcast for a month later this year.
Gloss FM is run by a not-for-profit organisation and is based in Thornbury, where it operates for a number of weeks every year on a restricted licence.
At a meeting to be held tomorrow, a report will be given to supporters, volunteers and anyone interested in the project, outlining progress made since an application submitted in the current round of community licensing bidding was turned down.
The rejection was due to no suitable frequencies being found that would not interfere with existing services.

But it is hoped to have a restricted FM licence for four weeks in the autumn and the team needs to find the money for that project.
It will also operate via the internet only during the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations in June.
Gloss FM chairman David Wrench said: "We are so thankful for all those who continue to support us, especially the local traders who have benefited from advertising to a receptive audience.
"The meeting will launch the next phase of the project and the exciting new developments we are planning for the future."
People interested should be at St Mary's Church Hall, Eastbury Road, Thornbury, for 1pm.
