Community Radio is coming to the Lambourn Valley!


Plan to bring Community Radio to the Lambourn Valley

Introduction and Mission Statement

 It's been a goal of mine to provide an internet Community Radio Station for the Lambourn Valley.

Now I'm hoping it will come to fruition this summer! My plan in the short-term is to pilot the Radio Station for approximately 6 months and broadcast 1 day per week.
The objective is to offer programmes that serve the needs of the Lambourn Valley currently not provided by other radio stations. From items of local interest and news, together with sport and music. The intention is to educate, stimulate, and entertain the listeners to reflect the diversity of the Lambourn Valley community. I will be aiming to offer programmes that engage with some of the elderly and less mobile members of the community, and because we live in the Valley of the Racehorse there will be a slot that covers racing as well.
This is a very exciting initiative and I'm confident it will be supported by the community. This being the case the aim will be to extend broadcasting to a minimum of 3 days per week in 2018. It would also be my intention to register the Radio Station as a non-profit making Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO).
This is great opportunity for young people to have a voice and I would therefore like to involve local schools and youth groups next year.
The current status update for the pilot is as follows:
· The required web site is currently being developed
· Estimated costs for equipment, furniture items, software, licenses etc.. have been obtained
· Short-term premises have been confirmed.
· Funding - I'm personally contributing 20% of the funding required and I'm looking at other potential options / sources. This is the biggest challenge but I'm confident the required funding get the Radio Station up and running will be achieved.
Further progress updates will be provided via Village Views, Penny Post and the Lambourn Community Face Book page and Lambourn Website.
