Research Shows Living In Diverse Communities Is Beneficial To Allround Wellbeing

May 30th, 2013

 "So often we read in our newspapers and hear from our politicians that immigration and ethnic diversity adversely affect a neighbourhood, but careful research shows this to be wrong. In fact, the level of deprivation, not diversity, is the key factor that determines these quality of life factors for people in neighbourhoods. So our research demonstrates the disadvantages of living in deprived areas but the positives of living in ethnically diverse areas." (Professor James Nazroo: Manchester University)

This Year Marks 50 Years Since Dr. Kings ‘Dream’

May 29th, 2013

 On August 28 1963 the marchers arrived.  By 11 o’clock in the morning, more than 200,000 had gathered by the Washington Monument, where the march was to begin. It was a diverse crowd: black and white, rich and poor, young and old, Hollywood stars and everyday people. Despite the fears that had prompted extraordinary precautions (including pre-signed executive orders authorizing military intervention in the case of rioting), those assembled marched peacefully.

Could You Spare A Few Hours A Month To Support Gloucester’s Community Radio Station?

May 29th, 2013

 Gloucester FM is a voluntary run community radio station that is operated entirely by volunteers  and broadcasts music, news, information & advice to the citizens of Gloucester and beyond via the internet (and delivers training when funding allows). We specialise in playing:- Gospel: RNB: Hip Hop: Reggae: UK Soundz & many other genres of M.O.B.O. (Music Of Black Origin). GFM: Live & Local all year 24/7

 
We are currently recruiting new volunteer presenters to join the rota of presenters on the GFM Programme Schedule. This includes Reggae-specialist presenters to present our Reggae-led ‘Drivetime’ show (weekday afternoons) & other Reggae shows, both new & classic Reggae. Also there are opportunities for presenters of other genres of M.O.B.O. music,old & new. If you think you can bring something to GFM 96.6 please get in touch! Please call 01452 525 425 (office hours)
 
Away from "spinning the tunes" and "dropping hot vibes"  — BUT — equally important to a community radio station, we are looking to recruit new members to join our Community Link Crew. This is involves connecting with our local community & voluntary / community groups working within it, to bring the ‘news, information & advice’ that benefits & empowers our listeners. For more information or to offer your support please e-mail our Community Link Coordinator – carolfrancis@gloucesterfm.com.

Behind the scenes: Gloucester FM is also looking for someone who can take the minutes at the Gloucester FM Management Board meetings, held once a month: also someone who has basic I.T. skills & could help to keep our website updated with the latest community news & events etc. Please call 01452 525 425 (office hours)
