Summer House Under New Management
This page shows the new premises allocated to Radio Heatherwood in January 2000.
As you can see from the photo's. A lot of work is required to complete the transformation into a broadcasting suite.
The building was nicknamed the Summer House by the studio engineer.
After years of broadcasting in the broom cupboard it was now time to move to the summer house.
The first indication that the old medical records building was the allocated room.

The allocation of the the old medical records building was on the rumour mill for some time before this letter was received in January.
This was the first written evidence this was going to be our new home.
Although we were advised of two options in reality this was the only option on the table.
As the radio's premises developed over the years it was sometimes thought upon that if we had a clean slate we would design the studio layout to our best working environment without all the mistakes which had been made previously.
The allocation of the new premises gave us an opportunity to really think about the layout and to make it comfortable for the volunteers and be practical.
