The town has been urged to keep in touch with Sid Valley Radio so it can keep families and residents up to date.

Station manager Bob Weeks said in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak the station’s role in keeping communications going across valley had never been more vital.

Anyone who runs a voluntary group, local business or who is an individual supporting locals during the Covid-19 crisis has been asked to get in touch with the radio who will broadcast it to the local area.

Mr Weeks said: “Tell us what support you are offering and how people can contact your organisation if they need your help.”

The station has put in a request for temporary Emergency FM license so it could provide a service of local community broadcasting to the Sid Valley.

Visit to listen online or contact the radio by emailing, calling 01395 514434 or texting 07565 825041.
