Local Community


The Bradford Ward has a population over 12,000 and includes the neighbourhoods of Beswick, Bradford and Openshaw. The ward is within the boundaries of New East Manchester Ltd, the Urban Regeneration Company for East Manchester and is part of the A6 Neighbourhood Policing Team (which covers only the Bradford ward). Part of the Sportcity development is also within the ward, including City of Manchester Stadium, National Squash Centre and the English Institute of Sport, as well as a National Cycling Centre Velodrome and the new National Indoor BMX Centre.

The ward has three parks (Philips Park, Openshaw Park and Bradford Park) and benefits from attractive green space along the River Medlock (Medlock Valley). I have created a short video of the River Medlock, to view it visit Wildlife Reporter.

Note: Remember when you stream anything to your computer, you are using up bandwidth. This means if you go over your alloted ISP bandwidth limit then you may incur penalties, this could be a drop of connnection speed for particular periods of the day, usually nightime, or you could also be charged. Make sure you read your ISP's fair usage policy if there is one.

Not many people are aware if you watch a lot of Youtube videos, the videos are actually downloaded to your computer first, this also uses up valuable bandwidth.

Please be aware some of these radio could become unavailable at certain times, or the live feed could be interupted.

If you have any problems or a station no longer works, please contact me.

I have only included a small selection of community radio stations here, may add more in the future.
