19.02.11: Supporters of plans for a new community radio station for the Roseland and South Cornwall are meeting next month to plan the next stage in their campaign. The meeting, planned for Tuesday 8th March at 7:30pm at The Roseland Community College, will update everyone on the drive to set up a central information hub for the area with a radio station at the heart of it.
Pete Appleyard, one of the people behind the vision, said: “We have already had really positive support from the community and a number of people have said they want to be involved. But now the hard work begins. We need people with specific skills if we are to make a real go of bidding for a licence when the opportunity comes.”
The meeting will be a chance for everybody to hear about the idea so far and to have an input into its direction. Whether you’re interested in becoming a presenter or producer on the station, getting involved with the steering group, helping out with marketing and fund-raising or pledging your support in another way, you are encouraged to attend the informal meeting.Pete went on to say: “We want to set up a radio station that will belong to the community who live and work in the area and will act as a platform for them to have a voice which might otherwise go unheard.”
As well as the whole of the Roseland, the proposed coverage of the station is to include the parishes of Cuby, Grampound with Creed, Ladock, Mevagissey, Probus, St. Ewe, St. Goran, St. Michael Caerhays and St. Michael Penkevil.
