During his president’s report Mr Barlow congratulated members on another successful 12 months of broadcasting. 

“Our listener survey last year achieved a good response from the community,” Mr Barlow said. 

“Eighty five percent of listeners rating our programs as good to very good.

“Listeners also confirmed that our programs are in keeping with what they want to hear. 

“I think we can genuinely say that we present something for everyone. 

“I would like to congratulate presenters on their knowledge of music across all genres and the interesting information they provide on performers, bands and of course community information such as not for profit announcements, news and events from around the district.”

Mr Barlow also thanked the station’s team of volunteers who regularly attend working bees.

This has resulted in renovations to the building and also considerable improvement to equipment by the technical team. 

“Our website has also been updated and revitalised,” Mr Barlow said. 

“It’s still being worked on but is now phone and tablet friendly.

“This site provides a feedback and listener response section that will continue to improve. 

“Financially, we continue to remain in a very sound position.  Sponsorship has been pleasing again this year.

“The sponsorship will enable us to continue to improve our infrastructure.

“We upgrade and replace equipment while keeping funds in reserve for emergency situations.”
