THE creator of a new radio station is offering 10 businesses free advertisements in a bid to help keep Royston's town centre alive.

Andrew Fowler, of Roysia FM, will be offering the fully voiced advertisements to businesses.

"We want to do something for Royston companies and providing the advertisements is a good way of doing this," he said.

The radio station, which will be based at Roysia House in Market Hill, should be launched on December 11, but Mr Fowler said he still needs to raise an additional £7,000.

When it goes on air people living in Royston and surrounding villages will be able to tune into 87.7FM to hear local news and travel updates.

- Mr Fowler is also organising a corporate balloon event to raise money for the launch.

The balloon will take off from Therfield Heath or a school playing field in August.

He is looking for eight people to take part.

The flight costs £200 and will include transport from the location and a glass of champagne.

If anyone would like more information about Roysia FM or the balloon flight, call Mr Fowler on 01763 261967.
