Preston FM hits the road

Volunteers from Preston FM are to take the community radio station on tour over the summer months, thanks to a grant from the Media Trust.

The project, called 12 Weeks of Summer, will see the station visit six different venues in and around Preston broadcasting from each location for two weeks each.

The station wants local people to get involved by taking part in live programmes, having a go at special presenting and DJing “taster” workshops and working with the Preston FM volunteer team to produce their own show.

Richard Lace, project manager at Preston FM, said: “Our summer tour is going to give us the chance to get out and talk to even more Prestonians, as well as visiting places in South Ribble and Wyre that we’ve not worked in before. I hope that some of the people who visit us while we’re out and about will stay involved and volunteer with us in the future, once we’re back in a permanent home later in the year.”

Mike Gardner, volunteer presenter and Steering Group chair, added: “It’s really exciting to be going out on the road. Moving all our equipment around will take some doing – as will making sure that all of our presenters, producers and technicians are in the right place at the right time – but we have a great team of volunteers and we’ll all be pulling together to make it work.
