A West Suffolk initiative to help reduce rough sleeping in the area and better support people in preventing them from returning to the streets, has been awarded nearly Â£250,000 in Government funding after a successful bid.
Following a series of thefts of tools from vans and outbuildings, such as sheds and garages recently, Suffolk Constabulary launched a countywide crime prevention campaign to raise awareness and reduce incidents.
Launched in August 2010, RWSfm started broadcasting to Bury St Edmunds and surrounding villages on 103.3fm, having previously broadcast in various other methods for decades.
The station holds a Community Radio licence and is governed by Ofcom in the same way as commercial radio stations with the exception of being a “not for profit” organisation.
It provides a mixture of shows that has something for everyone and prides itself on being the only local radio station for Bury St Edmunds and the surrounding areas.
During the day we provide a mixture of great music variety along side local information, traffic, weather and news as well as local guests. In the evening and at weekend we run specialist music programes including country, rock and world music.
