Somer Valley Community Radio is a registered charity and the support of organizations such as Thatcher + Hallam is essential to ensure it can continue to broadcast and provide a service to the local community.

William Weller, Managing Partner at Thatcher + Hallam, said: “We look forward to working alongside Somer Valley FM. We share a commitment to supporting the local and working closely with the community in which we are based, so this new relationship makes perfect sense for us.

Nicola Cretney, Head of Marketing and Communications at Thatcher + Hallam, said: “Local radio is a vital resource for many people and has gained more and more listeners during the pandemic when people really wanted a more personal and local connection with what was happening around them.

“It’s exciting for us to branch out into this form of media and we look forward to sharing news of our services and other work we’re doing in this new way.”

Somer Valley FM station manager Richard Burgess said: “I’m so happy to have Thatcher + Hallam supporting us as one of our main sponsors. Ever since I became Station Manager, I have wanted a relationship with our leading law firm. Their continued investment in local charities, such as the Farmers Market and the Coalfield Museum, reflects Thatcher + Hallam’s support of our communities.

“We are a local non-profit radio station, here to support and entertain our local listeners, so financial support is vital to our operation. And Thatcher + Hallam join at a good time for us; recent recorded viewing figures are at record highs.
