The radio volunteers here in Petersfield have been named in the Community Radio Awards as one of the top five digital radio teams in the UK.

Petersfield’s Shine Radio is competing against stations from Leeds, Torbay, Gwynedd and Wandsworth.

Chair of the Awards, Martin Steers praised the quality of this year’s entries.

The breadth and depth of entries never ceases to amaze, and yet again our judging panel from across the industry has had some tough choices to make.

After a difficult year, our sector has been ever more important in its communities, and giving teams a well deserved opportunity to celebrate is key.

The awards will be presented on 23 of October at a ceremony in Coventry, the UK’s city of culture for 2021.

Shine Radio always welcomes new volunteers to its local team. If you’d like to get involved on air or behind the scenes you can find out more here.
