Community licence for Forest

Ofcom today announces the award of a new community radio licence, bringing the total number of community radio licences awarded to date to 63.

Forest FM, in Verwood near Bournemouth applied for a licence in November 2004 and today receives news they have won a licence to broadcast for five years on FM.

Forest FM aims to provide a community radio service for Verwood and the surrounding hamlets and villages in rural East Dorset, on the edge of the New Forest. The station will aim to nurture community spirit and provide access to local individuals, groups, societies and musicians as well as providing media training and opportunities for young and old. Forest FM will be the voice of the local community.

A statement setting out the main determining factors for the award of a community radio licence to Forest FM will be available shortly from the Ofcom website.
