Sky Dive Postponed

Sy’s Sky Dive for Nevis Radio was unable to happen this weekend due to low cloud.

It is going to be rescheduled around September, so still plenty of time for you to get on board and sponsor him, all monies raised will help support Nevis Radio within the community.

All Aboard the MS Artania

When the largest cruise ship to visit Fort William arrived on Sunday 9th June, Nevis Radio were there with the Fort William Marina and Shoreline Company to welcome her.

We were invited on board this magnificent ship to meet the captain Mr Robert Froenbroek and have a tour of the ships facilities.

We were made very welcome and had a good time looking around.  The captain presented us with a personalised model of the ship and allowed us to sound the ships horn to wake up Fort William.

AWARD WINNERS

The team at Nevis Community Radio Ltd are proud winners in the 2019 Lochaber VOSCARS.

These awards are nominated for by the public, and then the top 3 are selected by a panel of judges from Voluntary Action Lochaber.

We were nominated in the “Best Supporting Organisation” category, and announced winners at the award ceremony on Thursday 6th June at the Ben Nevis Hotel.

This is a big and very welcome award for the station as it is exactly what we hope we offer our community, that is, support and a vehicle for other groups and organisations to be able to publicise and report on their events and activities.

A huge thanks to those that nominated us and the panel for thinking us worthy winners.

We are very humble, and “CHUFFED” to bits!

Studio Refurb

We have been busy over the last couple of months at Nevis HQ.

The studio has a new ceiling and lighting, new acoustic tiles on the walls, new carpet, and to top it all we now have a temperature control system.

This major upgrade was made possible mainly to the Tesco Community Fund (blue tokens in store).

If you selected us as your charity – THANK YOU
