Help please: Wrexham FM needs a shed

The voluntary community radio station Wrexham FM needs a garden shed and is hoping that somebody can help by donating one. At the moment the studio occupies half of a secure outbuilding, the other half of which is full of personal belongings and bits of equipment - but the station organisers now need that space to create a meeting room and place to study, as the station wants to offer training to anyone in the community who desires it.

Station Manager John Humberstone said: "Wrexham FM has a number of ex-professional broadcast staff running it and we've been inundated by requests from students and people working in the area who have asked if we can give them some training and experience in broadcasting. We're well equipped to do that but we just don't have the room right now due to the clutter in the second half of our studio building. All we need is a garden shed where we can store the clutter, so that we can make a proper study and learning area for those interested in experiencing work in broadcasting".

WrexhamFM is self funding and non-profitmaking, with all the money raised from advertising and sponsorship going to pay their PRS/PPL requirements, BT bill and ancillary internet services. "Quite often we dip our hands into our own pockets to keep the station running," added Humberstone, "and the cost of a shed is something we can't afford in the present climate, but it something that will improve our facility ten fold and help to satisfy the demand we're getting to train people in radio broadcasting and give them some insight. There is plenty of room on our premises for a garden shed if anyone has one to donate. We're not worried if the shed is new or second hand, but our need for one is somewhat pressing".
