Non-licenced group wins grant

A community radio group which had its bid turned down by Ofcom has been granted £50,000 by the Scottish Community Foundation. The money would have enabled Radio Fyneside to start broadcasting but instead will take their programming online.

The new two year project will see people of all ages from twelve communities across Argyll get together to learn to put their communities on the map by making short television and radio programmes which will be available online. Radio Fyneside will provide ongoing training and work experience for volunteers and will advise and help communities in new initiatives to use today’s communications in enterprising ways.

Professor John Patrick, Chair of the Company’s Board, said: ‘We are very grateful to the Scottish Community Foundation for this vote of confidence in giving us one of only eight awards made from an original field of over two hundred applications to their new Communities Investment programme. The award is for the maximum amount available. We intend this to be a major collaborative adventure for everyone involved and a rewarding project for the Scottish Community Foundation to support.’
