BFBS opens new Catterick radio studios

BFBS Catterick has new radio studio today, officially opened by the Garrison Commander, Colonel Stephen Padgett.

He marked the occasion by cutting a ribbon and a BFBS cake.

The purpose-built studio, office space and meeting room is on Horne Road in Catterick Garrison where presenters will broadcast to the 4th Infantry Brigade and the units based in and around the garrison area.

Chris Kaye, presenter of the BFBS Catterick breakfast show, said: “I’m delighted to broadcast every morning from our stunning new studio. We’re part of a welfare hub along with the Infantry Training Centre and the Royal Dragoon Guards’ families office, so it’s a terrific location that brings us even closer to the forces community.”

The opening was a celebrated with a performance of traditional Nepalese dancing by Anjita Limbu, who entertained all of the guests, including 90-year-old D-Day veteran, Jock Hutton.

UK Bases Station Manager, Chris Pearson, said: “The BFBS team – Chris Kaye, Warwick Meade and Hannah King – are really happy with their new home and the opportunities the facility will give them to add value to the morale and welfare of the military and their families, friends and supporters.

“We’re so grateful for the support of the Garrison in finding us a great space in a location that puts BFBS Catterick at the heart of the forces community.”
