Radio Station receives funding

Chippenham Hospital Radio has been awarded £3,000 from Chippenham Borough Lands Charity and Wiltshire Council as part of a matched funding project.

The money is needed to update a number of bits of equipment including audio and IT in our on-air studio.

Station Manager Simon Hyde said "some of our studio equipment was coming to the end of its life and this money will allow us to replace this as well as invest in some additional bits of kit that we've not been able to do until now. On behalf of everyone at the radio station we're incredibly grateful to CBLC and Wiltshire Council for the funding and their support".

Chippenham Borough Lands Charity are a grant-giving organisation supporting the community of Chippenham in welfare, education, arts and community projects. They also run a community website, called One Chippenham, and rent out properties. The Borough Lands now consist of over 70 acres of land, in the centre of Chippenham, which they maintain for community use.
