TCR 106.8 FM launched in 2009 and is a not-for-profit community radio station based in Tamworth, Staffordshire, staffed entirely by volunteers. The station has strong links with the local community and provides a wide range of programming with a good mix of chat and music, predominantly from 80’s classics to new chart hits, as well as news and sports updates.
GB 400m hurdles international and KP Events ambassador Meghan Beesley is recovering well from the recent ankle operation that put her out of the Rio Olympics. Watching the Games has been frustrating for her as she admitted: “Watching it was tough but it’s made me more determined not to miss any more championships from now on”. She has returned to running and has promised to meet everyone at this year’s Tamworth 10k.
