GFM wants to move out of 'too-hot, too-cold' premises
Too hot in summer. Too cold in winter.
That is one of the problems with the temporary building housing GFM, the community radio station run by volunteers for Glastonbury, Street, Wells and surrounding villages.
"We are working in a big black metal box with no heating," said station manager Bob Lloyd.
"There is no soundproofing so we can't open the windows when we broadcast.
"It is a sauna in the summer, an icebox in the winter.
"Disabled access is almost impossible and dust from the Morlands industrial park where we are sited gets into the equipment."
The solution is a purpose-built studio in the adjacent Red Brick Building at Glastonbury and work has already started.
Cost will be £30,000 and £3,000 has already been raised.
The weekend shift at Clarks warehouse in Street raised £750 with a sponsored walk from Wells to Glastonbury.
A music gig at the King Arthur pub in Glastonbury brought £450 and £500 was donated by Glastonbury Festivals.
A further £1,000 was raised by Mr Lloyd, a fireman with 30 years' experience, giving fire risk assessments and fire safety training across mid-Somerset.
Other fundraising events include a music quiz at The Hawthorns in Northload Street, Glastonbury from 8.30pm on September 18 (entry £2 on the door) and a dinner dance at Compton Dundon Village Hall on Friday, October 25.
"Please help us raise the rest of the money," said Mr Lloyd.
"You can phone us on 01458 835299 with fundraising ideas, details on donating or tickets for the dinner dance.
"Or email me on email@example.com."
