The Mendip Mower Racing

Sedgemoor FM are working with YMCA Somerset Coast to see the return of the ever popular Mendip Mower Racing and Family Festival over August Bank Holiday. Yes, you read that correctly. Mower Racing. A nationally recognised motor sport where competitors modify ride-on lawn mowers and race them around a mud track. It’s mental! But that’s not all, there’s so much to see and do during the weekend including zorbs, climbing wall, archery, petting zoos, food stalls, the best local live music and of course, beer. Lots, and lots of beer.

On Saturday 26th, we’ll also be hosting an open mic night on the festival site, and we’re looking for acoustic acts to come and play the night away. If you’re interested in performing and you’d like a little airtime on Sedgemoor FM, or know anyone who might, contact us today using the email address: openmic@sedgemoorfm.co.uk.


Bridgwater Breakfast Club

Sedgemoor Fm, Bridgwater YMCA, Red Berry Recruitment and New Leaf Life Design have joined forces to create a new Bridgwater Breakfast Cube for local SME’s to be launched on October 18th 2017.

In 2013, there were 4,460 businesses within Sedgemoor, of which 4,000 were classified as micro SME’s, mking up 99.9% of the total business stock within the District. This network will encourage those businesses to come together.

They announce a very exciting launch event and welcome local Google Glass maker Simon Cattell, who will explain the benefits of using VR technology to help you understand how you can utilise it to better your business.

More details will be released soon

Freddy’s Fight For Life

A few weeks ago, it came to our attention that there was a young boy, living within our community that needed some help. Freddy, who is 4 years old, has a very rare, life threatening heart condition and needs some pretty intense specialist treatment to remove a cardiac tumour from his left ventricle. Unfortunately, such treatment is hard to come by in the UK and Freddy’s family are trying to raise £90,000 to take him to Boston Children’s Hospital, Massachusetts for an operation that will change his life forever.

Here at Sedgemoor FM, we want to do everything we can to help young Freddy get to Boston and return to living life as a normal cheeky 4 year old. So, we thought it would be a great idea to run a live 27 hour radio marathon, hosted by the great Dave Englefield. With plenty of ridiculous games, special guests, live performances and a 12 hour Dance-a-Thon, Dave will run the show and you’ll hear from all the other presenters too! Hopefully, we can help little Freddy begin his journey to good health.

Tune in to 104.2 Sedgemoor FM from 6am on September 1st to 10am September 2nd to join in the shenanigans and follow Freddy’s progress.
