Latest update on the radio project
Along the way, over the last three years, volunteers have had their hopes dashed when various things went wrong or created barriers to progress.
Many volunteers have stayed despite the set backs and, in July 2011 Sunlight Development Trust employed a radio project manager, who tirelessly struggled against all odds to put this community radio idea into motion.
The volunteers helped fuel the FM adventure with solutions to the many problems, determination and faith that Sunlight would succeed. And we did. Since 27th March 2012 we have been broadcasting on 106.6FM and aim to provide interesting and relevant content, so people will enjoy listening.
We owe a great deal to a network of supporters from other organisations. Now we are on air, we hope to gradually build broader links with businesses and organisations interested in offering help or partnering to run community development or education projects.
Our volunteers participate in our training programme to develop greater understanding of the high standards expected by listeners and Ofcom.
It's all about you, the listener
We hope that volunteers and other community members will provide local information and encourage debate.
Community radio stations are more likely to survive if listeners benefit from the service. As we train more volunteers to work behind the scenes it will become easier to respond to listener messages, research, edit and present interesting and relevant local information.
There is already a waiting list of potential volunteers who hope to participate in our training programme so that they can take on a variety of volunteer roles at Radio Sunlight.
Currently the list is closed to new applicants until we have raised the funds we need to resume the training programme. Have a look at the join in page.
We intend to continue holding open meetings to share information and build stronger links with listeners.
