For those who don’t know who we are, Taunton’s 107.8 Tone FM is a volunteer based Community Radio Station which broadcasts in and around the County Town on 107.8 FM and we now have our very own month newspaper called Tone News, which is delivered FREE to 15,000 homes in and around the County Town.
Our aim is to be involved with as many locally based projects, social groups and events as possible throughout the calendar year, to help promote and shout about the great things happening in Taunton.
Now, 3 years on, what has impressed me most of all about the TDBA, is how it highlighted so many fantastic businesses that I never even knew existed in the Taunton Deane area.
Now, in our 5th year and based at the Market House, we feel it is important to be involved with the TDBA so that we could do our bit in making sure that as many people as possible felt the same way.
As a small local business ourselves (a not for profit Community Interest Company), it is clear to see the benefits of these awards, because we don’t often get the opportunity to shout about the success stories , so to have them on the doorstep has to be a positive move forward.
The awards are now being recognised across a much wider area and have gained so much credibility, if we weren’t involved, then we would definitely be applying!
