We’re heading towards a major dual broadcast this weekend – 4-6th December. Both East Leeds FM and Two Valleys Radio are teaming up for an amazing 3 days of programming and you can hear it all right here (and then come back next week and listen again and again and again!). Here’s how it looks:
On Friday – Two Valleys Radio takes the lead. One of our jingles for Two Valleys Radio is “Two Valleys…Many Views” and on our opening broadcast day from the village of Honley in the Holme Valley – you’ll be getting many views indeed:
2-4pm Aim High
Looking at the High Schools in the Valleys (Colne Valley, Honley and Holmfirth) – our opening show will be led by students from Honley High School with live interviews with a range of staff, governors and students from all of the schools. What’s going on in our high schools? Are they creative places? How do they link with the communities they are part of? And what hope for young people moving on to careers in difficult times…
4-5pm What’s it like round here?
This broadcast is coming from Honley – but what kind of place is it? Local historian Peter Bray knows more about Honley than most anyone. We let him set the scene. And who’s making a difference? The Parish Council, local Councillors .. or the Honley Trust. What are the key issues for the village anyway? And as we head into the big Christmas weekend for the village, we bring the three churches round a table together to talk about what’s happening and what their role is in the life of the place.
5-6pm The Hills are alive…
There will be plenty of music coming to you over the next few days including lots of local music. We’re giving you a bit of a sneak preview of some of the musical delights coming up…
6-7pm Into the Valleys
Time for us to profile some of the exciting events and initiatives happening in the two valleys and beyond. What about older people in the valleys. We’re profiling Holmfirth organisation Friend to Friend – active in both valleys helping people to enjoy a healthier, more active and less lonely old age.Two Valleys Radio also attended the recent Transition North conference in Slaithwaite and we’ll be looking at what has happened since then. Also – from a bit further afield. “Don’t get me started” … do we need to sit down and do a bit more thinking and talking before we act? News from the Huddersfield Salon
7-9pm Be Prepared
We are very grateful to the 6th Holme Valley scouts for allowing us to use the Honley Scout Hut throughout the weekend for our broadcast base. We’re working with the Scouts, Beavers, Cubs and Explorers on a special show to round off our evening’s broadcast. Quizes, challenges and prizes. A feature on Project Nepal. The Duke of Edinburgh Awards (this will include a first for Two Valleys Radio – tune in for live knitting on the air). And special guests Hade Edge Junior Band will play us out in style
