Neil Campbell of Sustainable Uist was heavily involved in organising and running the very successful Benbecula Fun Day on Saturday, 7th July. But he took some time out to talk about plans and aspirations for a new Uist community radio station. The group has secured start-up funding and a broadcasting licence.
Now the fun begins! Anyone interested in getting involved can contact the group via the Sustainable Uist office in Balivanich (phone 01870 603863), or e-mail Neil on firstname.lastname@example.org.
