In this month’s show we had interviews with three Frome Women Shedders.  There was news about Men’s Sheds in the area.  “Making Tracks” this month was form Frome shedder Colin Pearce, about building the Aquatics Centre for the London 2012 Olympics. 

We had a brief section about the number of scare stories recently circulated regarding Statin usage.

Our advice is to use the British Heart Foundation website for authoritative news.
