Preston FM visits St Matt’s8/8/2011 by john
Richard Lace, station manager at community radio outfit Preston FM, visited St Matthew’s as part of the start of the Speak Up Preston project during the course of the Fun Day, held on July 9th at St Matthew’s church. After chatting with a number of community members, Richard took some time out to tell us about some of the issues local residents were interested in.
Key topics included litter around New Hall Lane, the need for more community arts facilities and amenities for older members of the St Matt’s community.
Preston FM and others in the Speak Up team will work in St Matt’s over the coming months to help generate ideas to help action these issues, and offer some seed funding to get the ideas of the ground.
