Last week, as part of his busy constituency schedule, Dan dropped into the Framlingham Technology Centre for his regular slot on community radio station, Radio Castle. Listeners were able to tune in and listen to Dr Poulter online, as he discussed both national and local issues, such as the changes that are being made at the Norfolk and Suffolk Foundation Trust to provide more health care services in the community for people with mental health conditions.
Radio Castle, which operates out of the Framlingham Technology Centre, was set up last year by directors Christopher Hudson, Colin Walker and Rupert Darrant and is run as a community interest company. The directors have encouraged any budding local djs and talented scriptwriters to get involved with the station, which is run solely by local volunteers and delivers information about local events to the community, while also providing a platform for young people with an interest in radio to learn vital new skills from its training suite.
Community radio stations like Castle Radio play a vital in reaching out to local people and Dan would like to thank Councillor Christopher Hudson, who is one of the directors at the new radio station, for inviting him onto Radio Castle. He very much looks forward to appearing on the station again soon.
