Local AM welcomes £12,260 grant for Point FM

Labour AM for the Vale of Clwyd, Ann Jones, has warmly welcomed the announcement of £12,260 grant funding for Rhyl’s Point FM radio station.

The funding, provided by the Welsh Labour Government, comes as part of a package of funding to support community radio stations across Wales.

Ann said: “Point FM plays a valuable role of drawing attention to local issues in our community.

“In addition to discussing issues affecting people, community radio stations also contribute towards improving the lives of their listeners through a variety of initiatives such as holding events, training initiatives, working with local schools and fundraising for local charities.

“I’m thrilled that the Welsh Government has awarded these grants and I congratulate Point FM and other community radio stations on the important role they play within their communities.”
