People can have their say on proposals to open a community radio station in Wellingborough.

Mark Jones, franchisee of O2 Wellingborough and Most Wanted Homes, plans to set up the new station.

He said: “I wanted to give something back and do something for the community that the community can be involved in. As I used to work in radio many years ago, I hit upon the idea of a truly local radio station for Wellingborough. We are asking as many people as possible to answer a few questions to help us shape what should be on the station.”

A survey, available at, asks questions including what sort of music people like and when should the station operate. Anyone interested in helping with the new station can also find out how to get in touch there or on the station’s Facebook page – Welly Radio.
