Events Update – August 2017
Out on the Road again…
Our schedule of roadshows and outside broadcasts now seems to be drawing to a close, and what a busy summer it has been!
On Sunday 20 August, the roadshow team were at the St Asaph Country Fayre, which is organised annually by the City of St Asaph Rotary Club. It took place at Llanerch Park. There was entertainment throughout the day and many stalls and displays to see, including music from Batala Bangor, the gun dog display team, Infinity Animal Rescue, Punch and Judy, classic cars and agricultural vehicles, and there was even a tug of war competition which saw Radio Glan Clwyd members Ceri, Glyn and Eugene helping out a team of firemen!
For more information, check out the event’s facebook page. A great time was had by all, and we look forward to attending the event again next year.
On Saturday 26 August, the team were at the Tweedmill Factory Outlet in St Asaph undertaking a bucket collection and selling raffle tickets. A big thank you to everyone who contributed to our collection, or who bought raffle tickets. As a charity, we rely on donations and fundraising to keep the radio station on air. Many thanks must also go the staff and the management at the Tweedmill for their hospitality and warm welcome once again. In the cover photo, you can see Lesley, Olga and Andy hard at work outside the Tweedmill entrance.
Annual General Meeting, 24 August 2017
The Radio Glan Clwyd Annual General Meeting (AGM) took place in the Education Centre of Glan Clwyd Hospital at 7.30pm on Thursday 24 August 2017. Lead by chairman Eugene Carey, the committee shared their reports on the activities that have taken place over the past 12 months. Members were thanked for their hard work, and a discussion took place on new ideas for programmes and for fundraising. And of course, the best part of the evening was the tea and cakes at the end!
The need for more members was discussed; If you would like to join the Radio Glan Clwyd team as a presenter or ward visitor, or if you can help with fundraising, please contact us. New members will receive full training, and will be required to complete a DBS check.
Join us for another Big Quiz Night, 2 September 2017
Listeners are invited to tune in on Saturday 2 September from 6-9pm for another one of our big quiz nights. Our ward visitors will be distributing the quiz papers and pens on the wards of Glan Clwyd from 6pm. There are 20 questions which will cover a very wide range of topics. They will be read on air by presenters Brenda and Andy at 7.10pm. The ward visitors will collect the quiz papers in shortly after this and will mark the answers. The scores will be announced on air at about 8.10pm and the prizes will be delivered to the winners on the wards shortly afterwards.
Of course, if you are listening online or in the local community, you can join in with the quiz from the comfort of your own home, but are not eligible to win the prizes. So get your thinking cap on, sharpen your pencil, ensure you have your paper at the ready, and join in with our Big Quiz Night!
