A COMMUNITY-RUN local radio station is changing its name.

Internet station Radio Wivenhoe will become Colne Radio from Saturday.

Run by 50 volunteers, the radio station has been broadcasting for two-and-a-half years and covers Wivenhoe, Mersea and the villages to Brightlingsea.

The station currently operates from a small studio in the Wivenhoe Business Centre and broadcasts 18 hours a day, seven days a week.
