Now that’s a Tougue Twister in the Studio – DLUGOKECKI

SUNDAY EVENING JUKEBOX PARTY!
I have had some fantastic guests join me on my Sunday show, and I wish I had remembered to take photo’s from each of these occasions. It was fantastic to have Ben Dlugokecki and Lottie Anne Cuthbert in the studio yesterday evening to chat and perform for us live in the studio. Here are some pics from the occasion and thank you Paul Burton, and Lottie for supplying most of these.

PARK COMMUNITY SCHOOL MUNCH This Christmas Day

Stuart Holmes in the studio telling us all about Park community school MUNCH . Find out all about the Christmas Day lunch at the school by visiting their website.

As a school we were aware of the food poverty that some of our community experience and were concerned our students were going hungry. This was reinforced when our local community told us how the food bank was consistently running out of food. We set up a community group to tackle food poverty in our area and in April 2017 MUNCH was born.

We successfully contacted external agencies for funding and MUNCH is now in operation supplying nutritious 2 course meals and activities for children and their families attending any Leigh Park school during the school holidays. Play equipment is provided, along with learning practitioners, who help our guests learn via play encouraging learning of vital maths and English skills. Our school nurse is also on hand, on a drop in basis for any concerns parents may have.

 

Our vision for MUNCH is to develop a sustainable local social enterprise by establishing a community food shop and café. This will provide volunteering and employment opportunities, as well as a casual meeting and eating venue to reduce social isolation – watch this space for more details.
We work in partnership with organisations who have excess food which otherwise would go into landfill . This helps to fill our MUNCH fridge in the Dickinson Centre. This is always fully stocked with emergency food for local families who are most in need.
We have expanded MUNCH to both Thursday nights and Sunday lunches. 2 course Sunday lunches start monthly from Sunday 25th March and Thursday nights meals start weekly from Thursday March 29th.

Listener in the Studio Ian Dunkley

THE JUKEBOX PARTY CONTINUES AS THE FLASH GOES OFF AIR!
Last night I had the pleasure of being joined by a long time Flash listener, after he e-mailed me about reception problems in Old Portsmouth. Ian Dunkley was probably surprised when I replied by inviting him to join me on air to share his 8 most favourite rock tracks. He had so much fun that he is now keen to join The Flash team as a presenter.
Unfortunately we were hit with technical problems just 10 minutes after the show started and went off air on both DAB and internet stream, however our intrepid engineer Richard Setford did manage to get us back on air for the final 25 minutes of the programme.
I am pleased to say that the studio party continued in spite of these problems, and the full show will be broadcast this coming Friday evening at 6.00pm. I sometimes forget to take studio photo’s of my guests but simply could not let Ian leave before I snatched an image of his very impressive shirt. Thanks Ian and we look forward to hearing more from you in the future, and probably with music almost as loud as his shirt!.
