Welcome to Swan-Radio

Keep Swan-Radio Afloat!

WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Like so many other organisations – indeed we are often in the position of promoting fundraising throughout our villages – we are now in great need to ask for help from our lovely residents.
Just so you know, we are a NOT FOR PROFIT, COMMUNITY INTEREST COMPANY (not a charity) set up as a Community Radio Station – primarily supporting the six villages of Wraysbury, Horton, Datchet, Old Windsor, Colnbrook and Poyle.
To date, have been supported by small grants and local goodwill, but rely HUGELY on regular fundraising events to keep our heads above water and pay our monthly rent for the studios and all other required outgoings such as music licences, insurances and subscriptions. Be assured that no-one in our little station is paid in any way – it is run entirely by volunteers and with love!
It comes as no surprise that this pandemic has meant our access to financial support has completely dried up and we NEED your help to stay afloat.
Our rented premises are closed under Government Guidelines and, thanks to Wraysbury Halls, we have had our rent suspended until the end of August, when we hope to be back in the wonderful Swan Radio Studios that we have worked so hard to convert and put together over the past 18 months.
During this crisis, so very many of our broadcasters have put themselves forward to creating home-based facilities to provide an alternative schedule for SWAN RADIO. Whilst we have been unable to get out into the community and freely support the many events that go on in our villages, nonetheless we have relentlessly ensured that our listeners are aware of all the support available for our more vulnerable residents, interviewed countless people of note who have been organising life-saving food, medical supplies and general support.
We have engaged and liaised with the young and old – made sure everyone knows of fundraising events, which pubs and restaurants are providing a service, created music parties for the children unable to attend school and put on a 14 hour VE Celebration Party for everyone to interact and enjoy in their households in May and much more. We rarely say ‘NO’ to any event we can give a helping hand to!
In the absence of NOT being able to put on our much-awaited Summer Party to raise necessary funding, we are asking our lovely listeners to look to their hearts and consider a PayPal Donation through our website www.swan-radio.co.uk to help us keep going.
As well as our usual mix of radio shows, our SWAN RADIO ULTIMATE MUSIC FESTIVAL is promising you all of the greatest bands in various concerts over the past five decades, performing in ‘live’ format for you to enjoy your very own virtual festival a la Glastonbury, Reading, Isle of Wight or even Woodstock.
Enjoy the weekend we are busy putting together for you and consider donating what would be the equivalent of a few overpriced beers!
The Directors and Broadcasters at SWAN RADIO love you all, please keep safe and look forward to seeing on the other side of Lockdown.

About Swan Radio

Who are we?

Swan-Radio CIC is a digital based 24/7 Community Radio Station based in Wraysbury covering a 5 km radius to include Wraysbury, Datchet, Horton, Old Windsor, Colnbrook and Poyle.  We formed in October 2018 and within 16 weeks we launched our first live broadcasts the following February.

How is it managed?

Swan-Radio CIC is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company, limited by guarantee with 4 unpaid Directors (Ben Wood, Mark Foster, Lynn Holden and Colin Bolton) and is run entirely by volunteers. It is a managed and community led radio broadcasting service, providing access, information, communication, entertainment, training and employment relevant to radio broadcasting.

Our vision is to encourage and promote a voice for those who are under-represented or socially excluded to provide an outlet for creativity, shared vision and expression for everyone in our local communities.

• Create, develop and promote Community Radio for the benefit of the inhabitants of Wraysbury, Datchet, Horton, Old Windsor, Colnbrook & Poyle
• Access to information A-Z of Knowledge and Needs for the Community – Locally and Nationally
• Explore and Improve Community Cohesion
• Access to Radio Broadcasting and Radio Training Skills
• Develope and promote Music, Arts, Sports & Health and provide a platform of expression for local people
• Provide Job Opportunities/Work Experience and Employment.
• Promote skills leading to employment

Why do we need it?

We have a passion to make sure that more residents benefit from the wonderful life in our villages, are more connected and feel proud of our communities.

We would like to reach as many people as possible with our broadcasts, including young parents, students, middle aged and the elderly of every ethnic group. We have a great community spirit to build on but are also aware that there are many residents who are not included in the full life of the villages either because they are housebound, working or just unaware of what is going on.

How do we decide what to broadcast?

We researched and talked to a range of residents before launch to find out local needs. We constantly re-assess, then plan the schedule to make sure we provide the information and entertainment that people really want and which promotes community spirit.

What can you expect?

Ideas included interviewing known personalities, local traffic news, upcoming events, live feeds from sports games, gardening tips, local history, pets corner, health & wellbeing, competitions, recognising personal or community achievements and of course great music!! We will also help with urgent requests and be a central point of information during emergencies.

How does it cost?

We have studios located inside the Village Hall in Wraysbury which we  converted and fitted out with broadcasting equipment. The project costs for the first year were estimated at £22,000 and £15,000 per year ongoing for rent and licences.  This is reviewed as we expand but at all times we keep costs down due to volunteers helping out and the goodwill of craftsmen in our localities.

What happens with any profits made by Swan-Radio?

Swan-Radio CIC is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company limited by guarantee and will be run entirely by volunteers. As quoted in our declaration on formation of a Community Interest Company (CIC36) if the company makes any surplus it will be used for improving the facilities of the station to provide a better training environment and for the station to financially support other local community groups in need of funding.
