The role of Sid Valley Radio in keeping communications going across The Sid Valley has never been more vital.
Over the coming weeks, your local radio station will become even more important as a source for news and information to families, businesses and individuals adapting to new ways of living and working.
With a majority of people working from home and schools closed, Sid Valley Radio is providing entertainment, local news and information that is accurate and of high-quality.
If you run a voluntary group, local business or an individual supporting local people during the current crisis, then please tell us about that help, what it is that you are doing in your local area, and we will broadcast it. Tell us what support you are offering and how people can contact your organization if they need your help i.e. your email address, phone number.
Sid Valley Radio which at present is only online approached our MP and Sidmouth resident Simon Jupp who contacted the Department of Culture Heritage and Sport to see if they would change policy to grant a temporary Emergency FM license to provide a service of local community broadcasting to the Sid Valley.
Your co-operation is fundamental to the station remaining truly local, reflecting quickly new developments as they unfold.
The current situation has shown the important role that Local Radio can play during an emergency. Please do get in touch if you’re an organization, business or individual providing help to others or that you are someone in need of help and support right now.
Sid Valley Radio is very much open for business – make contact by email: [email protected], or, call: 01395 514434 (ask for Bob) or text the studio 07565 825041.
