LOCAL RADIO DAY, FRIDAY 15th OCTOBER


LOCAL RADIO DAY

Friday 15th October

 


Welcombe Radio will be partnering Radio Warnford (local hospital radio) for our local radio day

The theme this year is ‘Love Your Place’ and we will be broadcasting from the heart of Stratford all day from 10 am to 6pm, On Rother Street Market both radios are joining up with a market stall (curtesy of Stratford Town Trust) to talk to local people about radio.

Organised by the Local Radio Alliance since 2019 it was originally started by UKRD back in 2015.  Its aim was to bring together local stations on a national level. 

UNESCO says of community radio.  It is a medium that gives voice to the voiceless that serves as the mouthpiece of the marginalized and is at the heart of communication and democratic processes.

In recent years, local radio has achieved new heights of relevance, there is a need to unite following isolation.  Joining meaningful and supportive networks has never been greater. Local Radio has proved an invaluable medium to facilitate such connections.

We want to use it not only to celebrate but to strengthen the connections that local radio brings to communities and those who make up those communities.  So,

CELEBRATE LOCAL RADIO WITH US

Listen in at www.welcomberadio.co.uk throughout the day to our community-led broadcasts.  Even better come and visit us at our stall. We’ll be right by the American Monument on Rother Street.

Will you be the one that solves our CELEBRATION COMPETITION
