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!

Christmas Lumiere 2019

We are so sad to announce that the 2019 Christmas Son Et Lumiere has had to be cancelled due to circumstances beyond our control. Please see our Facebook page if you need more details:.

Relocation 2019

As of 5th August, we're temporarily re siting to Allendale House who have kindly made space for us during the refurbishment of the Allendale Centre.  Other than some minor schedule changes to accommodate, you shouldn't notice the difference!

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.
