Busy carnival season for Abbey FM

ABBEY FM is in its second year of carnival season and the next two months promise to be as busy as ever for the station.


Askam Carnival saw the start of six fun-filled weekends last Saturday, and continues with Barrow Carnival this Saturday, Ulverston Carnival on July 5 and Walney Carnival on July 6.

Not only that, Abbey FM will be at Furness Fest on July 18, 19 and 20, and finally the Jubilee Bridge celebrations.

Barrow-born presenter Pete Murphy said: “Being a local guy it has always been important to me to put back into the community.

“We do this on air by raising the profile of local events and charities and we do this off air by being an integral part of the carnival season.”

Programme controller and breakfast presenter Colin Yare said: “We are all really looking forward to the summer schedule.

“It gives us a fantastic opportunity to meet our listeners and hear your views about your station.”

Station manager Amanda Bell, said: “We are committed to every carnival and committed to being part of the community.”

Abbey FM first aired on October 16, 2006, and serves the Barrow and Furness peninsula. You can listen by tuning in to 107.3 fm.
