“I am absolutely delighted with the recognition we have received from the Community radio sector across the UK. Congratulations to all those who received awards and nominations. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all our volunteers and everyone who has contributed to the station. We have producers, presenters and others who work behind the scenes producing content across a wide range of genres that is worthy of any commercial/professional station.  Many of our volunteers have no previous broadcasting experience.’’
Chris Phillips, Managing Director, added:
“To be recognised at this level before we reach our 1st birthday is a dream come true.  Our birthday party will now be extra special!”
