Radio Redhill's Chairman Nigel Gray is celebrating 25 years leading the team and volunteers at East Surrey Hospital, and has been presented with a special award by station co-founder Andrew Fowler.
In a speech in front of station members, Andy remembered that when Nigel first took over Chairmanship of Radio Redhill, Margaret Thatcher was Prime Minister, Ronald Reagan was US President, the famous racehorse Shergar had just been kidnapped and BBC Breakfast Television had only recently been introduced, swiftly followed by ITV’s TV-am.
Andy praised Nigel’s total commitment to Radio Redhill as a trainer, programmer, broadcaster, and as chairman over a period of a quarter of a century.
A collection to buy a gift was organised by station Secretary, Sue Mason-Brown, who through the auspices of the Executive Committee, managed to collect a considerable sum while keeping Nigel out of the picture.
