STOP PRESS...under this unforeseen life changing time of coronavirus we have set up a temp studio to carry on broadcasting. We need your support more than ever now to carry on and offer information, regular updates and support in our community and also some fun music shows whereby we can connect our presenters via 4G/ phones from their homes too, to carry on with morale and wellbeing. We have lost all live event community bookings which paid for our overheads, our time is as volunteers. Let's look to the future and getting the premises with good backing so we can continue.THANK YOU!
Tiverton Community Radio was formed as a social enterprise in 2017 and up till now we have had no accessible studio where we can do live shows. We have been resourceful and do many live community events out and about which we charge a small fee and promote for free many local events and festivals. We support many other community groups and charities to get their message across too. We are volunteers and the managing Director is a woman with a disability. The time has come to get a proper studio where we can be even more productive with youth training and more outreach services. We already have over 300 podcasts on local issues from heritage to tourism to education to arts to sports to events. We want to do more shows and a regular community show.
We have secured a lease on a disused town centre building where we are planning to create a co working and networking space during office hours (the first in the area) with access to fast fibre (Rural and town Devon sadly is lacking in good Wifi) training business opportunities too. Community hire and use at all other times which will be low cost. Pop up live events within the arts, culture and diversity too. Our aim is to be self sufficient in covering costs and to be low carbon too and to continue delivering good social impact and to continue fundraising for charities and training up volunteers. Community and well being is at the heart of what we deliver.
