Corinium Radio June 18: Fleece Fayre
Corinium Radio Volunteers Flock to the Fleece Fayre
Volunteers at Corinium Radio enjoy spinning a good yarn or two so they were never going to be sheepish about covering Cirencester’s annual Fleece Fayre.
We had a team of reporters out and about on May 7th to capture the event and one of the station’s long-standing volunteers, Cameron MacGregor, was the official MC.
A whole flock of helpers offered their services in a variety of ways and the result was an in-depth programme, including music, telling the story of this fun-filled community festival.
The sun got his hat on and residents and visitors alike turned out in their droves to enjoy a host of activities aimed at pleasing all ages.
Cirencester’s own community radio station interviewed the trio of VIP openers as well as many other personalities who helped make the day the success it was.
Our Fleece Fayre Special will have been broadcast by the time you read this but you can catch it on our listen again facility. Just visit www.coriniumradio.co.uk and enjoy the day.
Station spokesman Tony Coleman said, “It was a brilliant day in every way. The weather was great and the community spirit couldn’t have been better.”
As you read this the station will have already held a very special event at which we hosted a visit by Dame Janet Trotter, the Lord Lieutenant of Gloucestershire, to our studio.
Added Tony, “At the time of writing we were putting the final touches to this very special day. We’ll bring you up-to-date with all that went on in the near future.
Meanwhile if you feel you would like to be part of our ‘family’ here at Corinium Radio just ring Carole Boydell on 07776 144033 and find out what we’re all about.
