SAINT FM has celebrated a year on the air.

Presenters, organisers and local dignitaries joined together to mark the special occasion and to look back on the progress during the first year - and to chat about the future.

The station, based at St Peter’s High School and broadcast on 94.7 FM, has a five year full-time community radio license.

Saint FM also boasts more than 140 regular volunteers helping to run the station and produces about 70 shows a week.

Station organiser Sandra Amey-Martin said: “Saint FM has been successfully broadcasting 24 hours a day, seven days a week, since December last year. As a community based project we are unique.

“We have trained all the volunteers from students aged 11 to adults over 60. We cover every walk of life. We host a huge variety of local guests from council members, to local groups, unsigned live bands to undiscovered talent.”

The station also boasts a blind breakfast presenter, one who is hard of hearing and may also be branching out to include adults with learning difficulties among the presenters.
