Crawley Hospital radio is opening its studio doors on Sunday, April 7, 11am-3pm.

Iain Ridgley from Hospital Radio Crawley said: “Please come on down for a look around and an informal chat as we are currently looking for new volunteers to get involved with the station, not only presenting but all other aspects of the station as well including assisting with fund raising and technical assistance.

“Full training will be given and all we ask is that you are 17 years old or over.”

He added: “Hospital Radio Crawley is based in the hospital off West Green Drive in Crawley.

If you are interested in coming along just head to the main reception of the hospital and you will be directed to the studios where you will be able to meet some of our presenters and maybe even do a cheeky mention on the radio.”

Students from Bimm in Brighton and ACM in Guildford visit on Saturday Afternoons along with local musicians from the Horsham and Crawley area to perform on Iain’s Live Music Sessions.
