New opportunities

Right now there are some new volunteering opportunities with the project that may appeal to you or someone you know:

Features Organiser

If you’re well-organised and confident with computers you could help us file, catalogue and schedule audio features into our programmes. It would take about two to three hours of volunteering time each week, once we’ve settled into a good routine. You can do this from home on your own computer or laptop.


This is another satisfying opportunity for you if you have good computer skills and would like to help schedule the music and speech programmes into our output. We’ll train you on the software we use. Again, you can do this from home, connecting remotely to our systems.

Just send an email to us at, expressing your interest or to connect us with someone who you know would enjoy one of these opportunities.

News training

At 9am next Saturday, 5 September, TV’s Richard Gaisford will lead an online workshop on news gathering, bulletin writing and reading. He’ll demonstrate how simple, quick and fun it can be to produce valuable local news.

To be part of the online session and join the team that makes our daily bulletins, again, email and we can organise the link for you.
