Dear All,

Ofcom has not granted the application by South Northumberland Radio Group for a full time community radio licence for Synergy to broadcast on FM to people in south east Northumberland.

 

After six years of hard work by the Group to establish a genuinely accessible community radio station and two well received 28-day FM broadcasts, the decision of Ofcom is a great disappointment not only to our members and volunteers but also to the many individuals and organisations in the area that have supported our efforts since 2008.

We believe that the broadcasting service we provided did much to ease social isolation and meet the information needs of the communities and public at large in south east Northumberland.

 

We would like to place on record our grateful thanks to everyone who supported our proposals.

We wish Koast well in its endeavours in fulfilling its obligations to provide the type of community radio service the area deserves as the result of the award of a full time licence, and high standards of broadcasting which our listeners have come to expect.

The Group will meet in the very near future to consider its future.

Sorry to hear that, I was wishing SNRG would get the licence Ofcom must not have been listening to the great 28-day FM broadcasts that were put out.

You`re right.

It seems Ofcom don`t listen Adam. Or they declined to say they did, when we asked them!

Many thanks for your support over the years.

Good luck with WBTC stuff.

Is there anything we can do to change their mind!

No Maggie. Sorry there isn`t anything that can be done.

Their decision is final.

Many thanks for the eagerness to have a try.

Also many thanks for the chocolate!

It would be good to get it over the web ... I can't get it on my cat's whisker set.

Symptoms/Ex Bed.

It`s always been Synergy policy that we would not ask our presenters to put together quality programmes on the off chance of being listened to by a small number on the net.

Nice thought though both. Thank you.

I hope we gave you something you liked to listen to on the 2 FM RSLs

Who knows Symp. that guy in the red suit might bring you a solid state trannie this year!

"SYNERGY made many friends, attracted a host of talented volunteers and provided a much needed service to the community.

 

This was achieved with absolute honesty, integrity and a genuine desire on the part of all concerned, to be of service to the community.

 

The comments and letters of commendation are testament to the success of SYNERGY and for this we feel proud to have played a part".

 

From:

 

 

John W, Colin, Neal, John T, Brian, Margaret & all of the Synergy Team.

 

Merry Christmas & A Very Happy New Year.

    • A seven-year-old girl has brought her community closer together by creating beautiful messages of hope.
      Olivia Walker, from Bedlington, started by drawing a large poster to put on the fence for her next-door neighbours to see, because she "didn't want them to be sad when they were walking the dog".
      She then began to make more personalised posters, to display on fences or in her windows, aimed at cheering up other neighbours.
      The rainbow has become a popular symbol of hope within the pandemic over the two weeks, with many households displaying rainbows in their windows as a sign that this 'storm' will pass.
      But Olivia has taken it a step further with her personalised messages, drawing more for strangers online after her designs were shared on a local Facebook group and brought delight to many who saw them.
      The St Bede's R C Primary School pupil said: "I wanted to do it because people are along, and I wanted to make them happy. It makes me happy to see how much people like them."
      At ChronicleLive, we’re proud to be part of the NHS Heroes campaign, which aims to make sure all the amazing people of this wonderful organisation know exactly how much they mean to the nation.
      We’re asking you to show them love by helping us create a living map of gratitude from every corner of Britain.
      By dropping a heart on the map, you’re saying you appreciate the efforts undertaken daily in the NHS.
