10Radio started life in 2004 when a small group of local residents with an interest in community development read about community radio in Manchester and thought "wouldn't it be great to do it in rural Somerset as well". In September the following year 10Radio was born with a month of varied broadcasts that took the Ten Parishes by storm. A year later, and the second month of broadcasts attracted 200 presenters and 50 studio volunteers. Inspired by the success it was decided to apply to Ofcom for a community radio licence and two months later we heard that we'd been successful. There then followed a frantic year of finding permanent premises, fundraising, specifying equipment, converting and fitting out our new home, and launching ourselves on the listening public in January 2008. 10Radio is formally constituted as a Community Interest Company limited by guarantee. All the company's assets are locked into the community's benefit and no-one makes a private profit. Anyone living, working, being educated or trained in the Ten Parishes, or sharing their interests, can become a member of the company. 10Radio's stated objects are to carry on activities which benefit the community and in particular (without limitation) to: Create, facilitate and advance new information, education, training and entertainment opportunities through a range of activities for the public; making new connections between people of all ages, races and backgrounds; giving rise to personal and social development opportunities, capacity-building and contributing to community regeneration; and consulting with and developing meaningful long-term links between individuals, families, groups and organisations from a wide community of interest and from both urban and rural areas, to share experience and expertise, advancing active involvement in the social and economic development of rural, urban and international communities.
