What We Aim to Do on Connecting Stratford on Avon

Stratford Upon Avon has so many varied groups, individuals, organisations and local businesses, beavering away in the background of our community, they support others, and raise money for their causes, often going unnoticed.

Part of our programme is about raising their profile via broadcasting their information to connect them to the wider community of Stratford on Avon. 

Using information about national and international campaigns, I try to find out what is happening locally and who is involved. We can interview the relevant people and discuss the local issues. 


My programme and I support


They believe that anyone affected by or at risk of sexual violence should feel supported and empowered.

Don’t hesitate to call them on 01926402498


By broadcasting what you do we can ‘spread your word’ by radio, our website  and by my facebook page WR Connecting Stratford on Avon.

There will be music, interviews and requests; local facts our ‘Dotty Days’ section and a few relevant facts and pertinent myths (Ooh - could be scary) challenging the myths. All within a friendly chatty atmosphere.

So, if anyone wants to tell us what they are doing - hobbies, what events are planned, etc, e.g. Jump in a Puddle Day or Mental Health week or do you have a story to tell? Come and ‘blow yours or others trumpets with us”.

We are non-political, non-commercial, and secular organisation . If you want to know what is going on, listen to Connecting Stratford on Avon and visit my Facebook page.

You can contact us through this website, by email, Facebook Group - WR Connecting Stratford on Avon or mobile 07927336783

All my life I have been involved in community activities in some way or other.  From an upbringing on a farm and being involved in village life in youth groups etc. meeting adults who cared enough to ensure activities for village children, helping with an integrated mother and toddler group where children ‘with issues’ played along children without various  when my daughter was young. The hustle and bustle of supporting my child in the school community. Later helping run local festivals taking part in amateur dramatics along with my work as a District Nurse, highlighted to me that communities that pull together and care can help reduce social isolation and be a jolly good laugh.

When we moved to Stratford Upon Avon after my retirement from the NHS in West Sussex I joined my brother in helping him develop Welcombe Radio for very different reasons, I have a belief that communities that work and play together benefit all, it would be a great way to get to know different people and organisations and then found that there are so many groups but they don’t necessarily know others undertaking similar themes.
