Station could be demolished

The studio base of Kidderminster Hospital Radio is in danger of being knocked down, if a plan by the hospital trust to demolish surrounding buildings goes ahead.

The station operates from a bungalow which was made specially for them in 1987 after donations from members of the public.

It is because the studio is so close to surrounding property earmarked for demolition, that the station has been told the bungalow must also go.

Michael Dimbylow, secretary of the station management team told the local Express and Star: “We do not think the trust has been straight with us.

“First they said the building we are in was too close to Brook House, which is due to be demolished. However, when I queried this it finally came out that they wanted to create six car parking spaces in place of the building.”

Director of the hospital trust Jeff Crawshaw denied the radio station was getting a raw deal, also commenting to the newspaper that there had been talks about relocating them but these talks had not been finalised.
