Ever try to imagine what those faces are like behind the voices? Well it's not always a nice surprise (but don't tell anyone we said that)! Here you can (virtually) meet our volunteer presenters and Directors!
Your Local Community Radio Programmes
We have live shows every day here on Radio Wimborne - you can spot them, they're the ones in blue font (see each 'day' page). Some of our shows are repeated later on in the week - just in case you missed your favourite presenter or some breaking news about town!
If you miss the repeat too, you can always check our Listen Again page to see if the latest edition of the show you're after is still up there!
What is a Sponsor?
We love local companies sponsoring Radio Wimborne, it means you care! We hope that by sponsoring your local community volunteer run Radio Station, you get a warm fuzzy feeling inside - and extra customers!
We have just one main station sponsor each each and we have been lucky enough to have super local businesses in this role - there is currently an opening as we head into the new year. And you can also sponsor by taking out an Advert with us.
We are proud that local property maintenance company Maintenance Matters, is on board! Contact Dave or Coral for first class reliable work on your property!
Radio Wimborne is all about our local community and we just love our town and all the lovely people in it! We decided to do a Pied Piper exercise around town to show you all our favourite places and people. As people joined us on our tour of the town, the crowd grew and the traffic stopped! See if you can spot anyone you know! The video features amongst others, some of our presenters, town Firefighters, Police, The Dorset Youth Marching Band, local tradespeople and some dancers from local theatre company! Go on, have a look and see who or what you recognise!
Steve White's Saturday Sports Round Up Show continues each week 15:00-17:15 on our main station output which you can listen to via our website, Alexa, Google or TuneIn.
When Wimborne Town are back 'at it' in September, we will resume live coverage of their games, watch this space for news!
Covid-19 and Radio Wimborne
The Radio Wimborne studio was locked down following government guidelines in March 2020. Most presenters accepted the challenge of not having a studio by constructing and recording their shows from thier own homes. They are then sent in via the wonder of the Internet where our technicians schedule the shows via a remote link.
UPDATE Aug 2020. The studio is gradually being brought back into use by inviting presenters to resume their allocated live slots but only by conforming to very strict guidelines of social distancing and sanitising routines. Guests are strictly forbidden currently but we hope to back to normal as soon as we can.
Carols in the Cornmarket 2019
Our team are pleased to be able to support the wonderful Carol singing in the Cornmarket again this year. 20th December at 6pm, a large crowd will gather to join in the festive singing. The Mayor will be there collecting for the Mayor's charities this year along with many other people speaking and performing. Look forward to seeing you there!
Dreamboats Regatta 2019
The Dreamboats charity on the River Stour in Wimborne where you can hire various boats, had a promotional fund raising event on the 7th July. Their annual Regatta was supported by Radio Wimborne providing the PA system and presenters to help the day flow along. There was competitive racing and loads of laughs along the way. Bob the Sax, the Polly Morris Band and the Dorset Youth Marching Band provided the music.
A fabulous day showing off the support that Wimborne residents give to the town.
