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.

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!
As part of Nevis Community Radio Limited’s on-going commitment to becoming more sustainable, a joint project has been undertaken with GFG Alliance, the new owners of the aluminium smelter in Fort William, to relocate one of their four transmission sites .
Along with our shiny new page optimised for phones, tablets and any other internet enabled device we have opted to utilise Mixcloud for our interview content opposed to the restrictions from Soundcloud.
We have been hard at work in the studio building a brand new up-to-date and mobile device friendly website.
