’s Mayor took to the airwaves today (Monday, November 28) to officially unveil a broadcaster’s new mixing desk.

Coun Les Ellington was one of the first to use Radio’s new £10,000 state-of-the-art equipment, which has been part-funded by a grant from the Borough Council’s Community Chest.

Mark Bexley, Harrogate Hospital Radio Chairman, said:

The new mixing desk represents a significant investment for the society. We are very grateful to have been given financial assistance from Harrogate Borough Council. Without it we wouldn’t have been in a position to purchase the equipment.

I am thrilled that the Mayor was with us to officially launch the new mixing desk.

The award-winning station, which began broadcasting in 1977, was last month presented with the Duke of York’s Community Initiative for the work it does.
