May-June update

Radio Buckie encourages everyone to 'vote local' in the current round of Money for Moray. Voting on their website is now open!

We are happy with our recent funding award from the Moray Communities Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund. This allows us to complete our branch move to Cullen, so thanks to everyone involved for their kind backing, so far. This support comes on top of some financial aid from the Moray Beatrice SSE Fund that has allowed us to buy handheld recorder devices to enable more outreach work in the local community.

Meanwhile, people have appreciated listening to local programmes during the pandemic, so Ron, Tam and Chris have created a 'Homemade Jam' podcast. Also on this Home Page, Chairman Nick conducts an entertaining and informative interview about Portknockie with local heritage members, whilst Ron and Bosie have made a great nursery rhyme podcast targeted at young children and people with dementia. Tam T's first two 'Down the Decades' programmes, combine well known songs with our local history, and another is in the pipeline. Furthermore, we've put together a great 'Playlist for Life' of one our area's renowned wordsmiths - Caroline Fowler fae Buckie. In our 'More Programmes' sections, there's also an informative and interesting heritage interview with Peter Reid on the history of the Portgordon area, Gav Troon's fabulous 'Scottish Show' series, and much more. Check them all out. 

Hopefully, we can all get back to full speed as the C-19 restrictions ease; so, if you fancy contributing to in some way to Radio Buckie, even if it's just raising awareness, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
