We’re proud to become the new sponsors of Radio Shields!
We’ve always been proud of our links to the local community and always on the lookout for local projects to get involved with. Over the course of the last half-century, we’ve been an integral part of the local community and it’s a source of great pride to be involved in promoting local causes.
The local radio station Radio Shields is based from Farnham Road in South Shields and they are looking to become a local community hub, with all the latest news and discussions related to both North and South Shields.
You can find more information on their website and they have a host of different daily programs which you can listen to on the website too.
The station broadcasts 24/7 via the app and plays an assortment of music including the latest tunes as well as old classics.
They’re also currently on the lookout for any volunteers to help out.
By being sponsors of Radio Shields, we hope to get more people involved with the local community and also provide a new avenue for locals to talk about the issues that matter to them.
The success of the recent campaign to start the South Shields Christmas Market shows the power of grassroots campaigns through social media and we#re hoping radio can be an extension of that (though it might never again reach the influence it once had now with the advent of social media).
Previous experience isn’t essential but if you have a passion for the local area around South Shields and North shields and want to get involved in this exciting community project, then get in touch.
Richmond Taxis are more than just a company that provides taxi services. We see ourselves as integral members of the local community throughout South Tyneside and when we heard about the new local radio station starting in Shields, we were delighted to get involved when we were approached.
Stay tuned (no pun attended) for more updates on how Radio Shields get on on Richmond Taxis website!
