It is run entirely by volunteers, who regularly give up their spare time to entertain the listeners. 

PR Officer, Scott Rawlings, said: "We are so proud of our team and members for their nominations at the national awards, and are looking forward to the big day, and hopefully scooping a couple of awards along the way."

"We're always on the lookout for new volunteers, so if radio appeals to you, get in touch and let's get you on air!"
