Community radio station finds new home in unused rooms at campus

Students from Mid Cheshire College will be able to host shows for a community radio station that has moved to the campus.
Mid Cheshire Radio transferred its broadcasting equipment into two spare rooms at the college’s Creative Arts and Sports Centre, after it was forced to move out of the Verdin Centre, in Cheshire, because Chesire West and Chester Council closed the building.
Students will now be able to help present shows and work behind the scenes with production.
Karen Burns, from Mid Cheshire Radio, said: “This will provide the perfect environment for us to launch ourselves deeper into the community and give students an opportunity to learn and express themselves in a creative environment.”
