The members of the Kingsmuir Saturday Night Dancers have assisted Radio North Angus with a donation of £400.00.

 

The members, from across Angus, have been meeting every Saturday evening between 8 and 11pm, for the past four years, in Kingsmuir Hall to enjoy an evening of Scottish Country dance music provided by local artists such as Steven Carcary, Wayne Robertson, Johnny Duncan, and Scott Carnegie.

Finance had accumulated from the proceeds of raffles and surplus income and it was decided to donate £400 to RNA FM.

Accepting the donation from Mr Jim Bradford, Malcolm Finlayson, Managing Director, expressed gratitude to the members for their generosity and explained that RNA is being increasingly invited to provide music and commentary at outside events, and on occasion, is asked to relay the performances of artists through the PA systems. The donation will be used to purchase a further two radio microphones in order to enhance this facility.

 

On average, approximately 50 people attend the Saturday dances, and more members are being encouraged, particularly younger people.

The programme for the remainder of May includes: 17 May Wayne Robertson; 24 May Dave Husband; 31 May Johnny Duncan.

 

Further details can be obtained from Jim Bradford, 01307 465765 or 07999 570167.

Very appreciative of BBC1 TV Breakfast Show conducting an excellent feature of the 50th anniversary of the opening of Radio Caroline, the offshore radio station. This was commendable, considering that Caroline, and latterly, other offshore stations, effectively created a demand for commercial radio in Britain (of which RNA is one) in direct competition with the BBC.

Would also like to record personal appreciation to Ronan O’ Rahilly, the founder/owner and Managing Director of Caroline for the inspiration that he gave a future generation of commercial radio operators.

The  Monifieth  Mile  is  set  to  be  an outstanding event.  All the funds  raised  will  help people experiencing unimaginably tough lives locally, across the UK, and in some of the poorest countries.

Refreshment  stalls  will  also  be  on  hand.    Radio  North  Angus  will  be  providing entertainment to motivate participants who can choose their own distance, from 1, 3 or 6 miles, and can compete in any way they fancy. From teeny tots with their mums and dads, to super sprinters, there’s something for everyone on the big day.

RNA is delighted to be invited to assist with the Brechin Christmas in the City Event, organised by Bravo Brechin, to be held on Saturday 30 November.

Whilst in previous years, RNA has assisted by providing music and commentary at the Christmas Lights Switch-on Ceremonies, held in St Ninian’s Square, this year promises to be far more entertaining for all concerned, as the Christmas in the City event is being held in the centre of town from 10.00am until 5.00pm. There will be carol singing by a school choir, a mini panto, and entertainment from local musicians throughout the day, and a coffee morning, crepes and bake, and craft sales will be held in the City Hall, where soup lunches will be available.

Santa’s grotto will be open from 11.00 to 2.00pm in the Town House Museum, and a Framers’ Market will be held in Church Street, from 10.00 to 3.00pm.

Sean Batty, celebrity weatherman, STV, will be attending many of the events in the course of the day, and will be conducting the tree lights switch-on in conjunction with Santa at 4.00pm.
