Have your say

VOLUNTEERS are desperately needed for a community radio station in Havant.

Angel Radio, a nostalgia station for older people that is a registered charity, is putting out the call for volunteers to keep the station thriving.

The station, based in Market Parade, needs people who are willing to give a few hours of their time to help.

Roles needed include receptionists, cleaners, presenters, engineers and anyone who thinks they may be able to contribute to the running of the station or has ideas for new shows.

Mildred French, chairwoman of the trustees of Angel Radio, said: ‘There’s a whole variety of things, such as working in the reception which would obviously involve taking phone calls.

‘It could be taking requests and writing them up.

‘We are also looking for somebody just to keep an eye on the housekeeping duties.

‘We are looking for people to do research into programmes and if anyone has any engineering ability that would be marvellous.

‘We need presenters – it doesn’t matter if you haven’t done it before.’

The charity runs on a very small, tight budget and fundraisers are needed.

The station in Havant went on air in Havant in March 2002 on 101.1MHz FM and goes out 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

It is listened to by people across the world.

Mrs French added: ‘This is a great opportunity for people to learn new skills.’

If anyone would like to help, call in to the radio station in Market Parade or phone (023) 9248 1988.
