SCTV AGM: we met in Woodruffs, updated our constitution and agreed to continue to work with Transition Stroud. For anyone interested we can share more – do get in touch. We are still keen to have more volunteers!!

GIVE UP NEWS: Here at Stroud Community TV we love positive stories and films about great things happening in our community…..well the message from a new book confirms we are on the right track. The book found that ‘News is bad for you – and giving up reading it will make you happier. News is bad for your health. It leads to fear and aggression, and hinders your creativity and ability to think deeply. The solution? Stop consuming it altogether.’ Read article about the book here:
