WREXHAM'S AM has congratulated the town’s community radio station, Calon FM, for receiving a share of a funding award from the Welsh Assembly Government.
Lesley Griffiths - who had supported the application - was commenting after it was announced that Calon FM will be one of six Welsh stations to share the £67,500 award to support work with their communities.
Calon FM was the 100th community radio station to be launched in the UK and has been serving the people of Wrexham since March.
Ms Griffiths said: “This is great news for Calon FM, as it proves it is a community radio station in the true sense. The criteria for receiving this funding was very strict, as the station had to prove that the service they provide is much more than just music and chat - which incidentally, they do very well.”
