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
Your next shopping trip to the Co-op could be a BIG benefit to us.
We are delighted and honoured to of been selected as 1 of the 3 charities you can nominate for this years Co-op Community fund when you shop at the Corpach store throughout 2019.
For all you ‘divvy card’ users who know the setup – we would thank you for all support you can give, and for those who don’t it really is easy.
When customers buy Co-op own brand products or services, 1% goes to the local Co-Op community fund. This money along with the money from the single use carrier bag sales supports projects in the local community.
Simply go online to your Co-op account and you can select the cause you wish to support with your 1%.

To celebrate the arrival of new and returning students to West Highland College, Nevis Radio has spent the last week broadcasting from the venue itself. We’ve had a great time interacting with the students and the staff, even if most of them were too shy with us to chat with us on air. The college had such a buzz throughout Fresher’s week and we loved finding out about the different courses offered right on our doorstep, from Adventure Sports to Child Care and Cookery. It also gave us a chance to try out remotely controlling the studio from a laptop without anyone back in the studio, which was a great success. We’re itching to use this in different locations around the area now! Check out the pictures below to see what we got up to:
The outside broadcast team (minus Esme who cropped herself out and Jean who wasn’t there that day) AKA Ian, Simon and PARJAY.
Simon providing a soundtrack to Fresher’s week on his decks.
Jean getting down with the kids and having a blast!
A big thanks to the staff at West Highland College for asking us to come and for being such lovely hosts, we hope we helped make Fresher’s week even more special for the students!
