This week CHBN Radio starts a new series called TRURO TALK. As the name suggests this is a talk show, which is something of a departure for CHBN, and indicates a subtle change of direction for the station which is aiming to make a greater effort to reach out to the life and the community of the City of Truro.
Did you know just 10 minutes of physical activity a day can benefit your physical and mental health?
Starting in May tune in to CHBN and take part in 10 minutes of activity to keep stretching and moving, every day. It’s great fun to do and it will be good for you too.
We want groups to take part too! We're looking for volunteers to organise a weekly get together for a group of older people to enjoy ten minutes of physical activity. You can play the activity on CHBN or online.

We recorded the entire event and edited highlights will be broadcast on Wednesday 18th October, between 12noon and 2pm, repeated Thursday morning 10am to 12noon.
The programme is also available to play on-demand on Mixcloud at www.mixcloud.com/CHBNRadio
On Thursday 5 October 2017 the day dawn grey – overcast and raining menacingly. Not the ideal day for transporting audio mixers, microphones and other assorted items into a school for a major outside broadcast. Fortunately, by lunchtime, the day had changed completely, and all was set fair for our ‘school trip’.
On Sunday 20th August 2017 a team of volunteers from CHBN were at Sainsbury’s in Truro raising funds for the Hospital Radio service by packing bags and helping customers with their shopping.
The team raised a fantastic £688.39. A heartfelt thank you to all the shoppers who supported us on the day.
Two Truro organisations which promote good mental health - and who have both recently featured on CHBN - are joining forces to host a special evening to mark World Mental Health Day this October.
Stacie Clark of New Day Knitwear and Hayley Stanton of Quiet Connections will be opening the doors to their office so that people who have been affected by, or know someone who has been affected by, mental health issues such as anxiety, depression and low self-esteem can connect and create with one another in a calm, relaxed environment.
