The village of Lowick and its neighbours will soon be tuning in to its own local radio station!
Lowick Community Broadcasting (LCB) will be ‘on-air’ in the next couple of weeks and will offer to local residents the opportunity of joining in with the project in a whole range of ways.
At its last meeting the parish council heard from project leader Kevin Archer who gave an outline of progress so far and future plans.
‘This is an exciting new venture which I hope will capture the interest and imagination of a wide range of local people of all ages and backgrounds both as listeners and contributors.
Having had experience last year of setting up a radio project on Holy Island and before that of involvement with community radio in West Yorkshire, I know how much such a venture can offer by way of developing and showcasing communication, organisational and technical skills and strengthen a sense of local identity.
We will offer opportunities to become involved whatever your level of expertise and experience, and training will be available.
Creating lively radio programming is, of course, a practical and social activity which can flourish even during times of lockdown and it is my firm hope and belief that LCB will play its part in helping to maintain community spirit both in the present climate and as things gradually return to a semblance of normality.’
If you have questions or you’d like to find out how you can get involved, you can drop Kevin a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or call him on 01289 388231.
