The future of Seaside Community Radio

SEASIDE RADIO will celebrate its fifth Birthday in the next six months.

During the last four years the Withernsea-based community radio station has won the Town Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Community. Originally planned to be only a 5-year project, if you want Seaside Radio to continue beyond October, it now needs your support more than ever!

Seaside Radio has been at Withernsea Primary School recently sponsoring a competition to promote literacy with a local childrens author and has already been booked for the Preston Village Show. Last year the Station worked with the Army Cadets and with the Digital Switchover, in previous years they have spread their wings as far as Bridlington for the Seaside Voices project.

Station Manager, Justin Macartney, said: “We achieved the delivery of this complex community radio project – much of which is hidden to the listener and simply does not just happen by magic – through the contributions of countless volunteers, some grant aid and local advertisers.

In these challenging economic times your contribution is more vital than ever. So far in 2012, five other community radio station projects have ceased broadcasting. Seaside Radio needs the support of other community organisations to ensure its continued success. On air we can be heard across southern Holderness and online over 34 thousand unique readers annually.”
