clipstonOn January 12th HFM recorded the last of our ‘Village Voices,’ series, each one of which has highlighted a village within HFM’s coverage area of South Leicestershire and North Northamptonshire. We were at the Village Hall in Great Bowden, and a recording of the evening can be heard early in March.

mowsleyThe series of ten programmes was very well received and encompassed range of topics covering aspects of village life across the region. People attending the evenings had the opportunity to record their comments and views to feature in the programmes which were all broadcast later on-air. The series was made possible by a grant of £10,000 from the Big lottery fund.

HFM’s Programme Controller Chris Jones salubid: “We were delighted to have been given this award by the Big Lottery Fund as it has enabled us to get right to the heart of the community we serve”.

“We have a considerable amount of listeners in outlying areas away from Market Harborough itself, and this enabled them to play an active role in the output of the station”.
