Following the announcement that Steam Fair FM, would not be broadcasting during the 2015 Great Dorset Steam Fair, event organiser Martin Oliver has issued the following steatement via the GDSF website:

"Following our news article posted yesterday (23rd Feb), I would like to thank everyone who has sent feedback via email and via our GDSF Facebook page. Clearly, by the number of replies and comments received there is overwhelming support for the Radio Station at the GDSF.

Certainly I think the Steam Fair management did not realise how popular Steam Fair FM is and as such I feel it is only right to re-open negotiations with Patrick Heeley of Event Radio Associates. There are, of course, still important cost issues to be resolved but I am more than happy to talk to Patrick again to see what options might still be available and to see if any headway can be made regarding the Radio Station broadcasting at this year's show.

I will keep you posted."
