Despite moving to their new premises in Haddington only eight months ago, East Coast FM 107.6 the only FM community radio station in East Lothian, have seen their hard work to raise funds for a state of the art broadcast and training studio pay off.
Through the generosity of Community Wind Power who own and operate Aikengall wind farm and a grant of £10,000 under the Awards for All National Lottery Scheme, the ECFM team are able to realise their ambition of building a second studio, that will allow them to train up special need and visual impaired youngsters and adults. ECFM already have two blind presenters, and a specially built training studio will increase the opportunity for more people to become involved with the radio station.
Ian Robertson, station manager of ECFM says he hopes to have it up and running within the next two months. For further information on training opportunities ECFM will be offering please call the studio on 01620 826444.
