    Radio Station's £12,000 Boost

    South Northumberland Radio Group's campaign to raise funds for its second FM and simultaneous on-line broadcast has, this month, received two boosts: £500 from Blyth Town Council's Community Chest fund and a Big Lottery Fund Awards for All grant offer of £6251. This funding adds to £5250 in recent grants and donations from West Bedlington Town Council, the Co-op Community Fund, the Newcastle-based Sir James Knott Trust and an anonymous overseas well-wisher. The group's chairman, Colin Heathcote said: "We're absolutely delighted that our fund raising efforts have paid off and that we can go ahead with another broadcast. "Apart from the funding, we have had tremendous support for our project to provide a genuinely accessible community radio service from people and organisations throughout our broadcast area of south east Northumberland. "Amongst the many letters and messages received are those from several parish and town councils in the area, the local MPs, Northumberland County Council, Alan Shearer, the Duke and Duchess of Northumberland, the Salvation Army, Samaritans, Wansbeck CVS, Age UK, Bedlington Forum, Friends of Gallagher Park, British Red Cross, Bedlingtonshire Chamber of Trade and Sir John Hall who is currently chairing a committee which aims to breathe new life into Ashington town centre." He added: "Our broadcast in March last year attracted nearly 100 studio guests and was well received in the community. The second broadcast will enable us to build on that success and give volunteers a chance to further hone their broadcasting skills as we await Ofcom's five-year licence application decision."

    Dear All. Fantastic news just in today: The Big Lottery Fund has given us a grant of £6251 We applied for this money to finance another 28 day fm broadcast, similar to the one back in March last year. So please watch this space for further details... SYNERGY is about to return!
  9. Thank you for the kind words. Much appreciated.
  10. Dear All. Just to keep you up to speed: After nearly five years of hard work The South Northumberland Radio Group CIC, under the station name Synergy, has officially applied to be considered for the Region 4 North East England Community Radio Licence. Our application has been received & accepted by Ofcom. If there is an eventual winner of the licence, they will have the right to broadcast for a period of at least five years. An announcement should be made by the Autumn of this year. Synergy is one of three applicants for the licence. Good luck to all involved! The SNRG Management Team.
  11. Yes, probably that Malcolm; and a little help from the Synergy strap line...
  12. Not at St.Johns Road Adam.
  13. Err Keith. I`ll have you know they are luxurious, empty APARTMENTS. not flats. There is a difference you know! I wouldn`t live any where near mere flats!! If half of them are sold (as the sign says) then 90% of the sold ones don`t own: A car Curtains Blinds Light bulbs

  15. My most favourite song ever. Sung by Old Blue Eyes & written by Paul Ryan. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SEUqcOuGoyI
  16. Dear All You may well have seen this weeks News Post Leader which carries, on the front page. a lead story partially about Synergy. The online version also allows comments & one has been placed. Please see our collective response via Colin`s reply: http://www.newspostl...tions-1-5268091 Hope your festive season went well. Oh & by the way Merlin`s back!
  17. Great story Keith. It was Sir Humphrey I think. Maxine did an audio interview with him on KEVI Radio a number of years ago I`ll see if I can hunt it out. I find Chillingham a facinating place.
  18. Here`s a ghost story video about Chillingham castle I scripted & was producer on: http://www.inortheast.tv/view/programme/id/16 Don`t view it before you have your tea & watch out for the cow muck thrown in as extra!
  19. Heard this from my Dad after he did some R & R at Hartford as an injured miner. No story to go along with it other than that. Sorry!
