A COMMUNITY radio station in Cirencester has proven such a hit that it has outgrown its home.

Corinium Radio has broadcasted twice a year from the Bingham Library for the past five years since it was first launched.

Radio chairman Geoff Carr said those behind the station were keen to find a new base to be able to expand the work already being carried out.

He added that while the station could not pay rent, it would offer its services in exchange.

"If we had a permanent home we could achieve wonderful things," said Geoff.

"We could expand our training schemes in radio editing and radio programme production and we could hold regular training sessions, which we cannot with the current venue.

Secure storage for equipment and room for committee meetings are the main requirements.

"Our long-term aim is to have a permanent broadcasting presence in Cirencester," Geoff added. "It is important to us that we can have a base in the town. We want to be able to connect with far more people and a central location would allow us to be more accessible to the community."

Hundreds of listeners tune in to 87.7 FM to listen to Corinium Radio's broadcasts and live shows from the Advent Festival and the Cotswold Show are particular favourites.

The station is run by volunteers and is always on the lookout for anyone else who wants to get involved.
