This radio station is for the community in all its aspects, and we welcome participation by people from all walks of life. We advocate free expression and aim to reflect the social, cultural & artistic vibrancy of Forest Row and Sussex.
We promote fun and lively entertainment, freedom of expression, diversity, equity and inclusion. We believe that building this project WITH the community as well as FOR the community will make it sustainable, as well as encouraging a sense of shared responsibility. Innovative voices are welcome and we aim to cultivate online respect, equity, diversity and the representation of all social, political and spiritual voices.
It was our response to the Covid lockdowns. A time when our community felt challenged polarised we aimed to facilitate discussion. We want to move forward to create mutual understanding and a broadening of perspectives. We support comedy, music and the arts in bringing people to a shared and common ground.
We feel that care and respect for the station’s volunteers and contributors are as important as ideas. Our aim is to make connections, give people a sense of confidence, empowerment, and cultivate a sense of belonging and togetherness. We welcome people in the community who have broadcasting experience as well as those without.
We have around 20 presenters and supporters with professional expertise in sound production as well as a team of sound editing, sound engineering, video editing, marketing. All lcaola volunteers. Most of our presenters have never worked for radio before and we mentor and support in recording and editing- marketing & promoting. We hold regular gatherings for presenters to share ideas, support each other, conenct & make lasting friendships based on a shared passion for creating.
We are currently working on a sound project for 18-20 year olds to connect with nature through recording natural sounds, taking samples editing and creating soundscapes or music.
Wildhart Radio CIC provides a much loved and valued service for the community.
We need your help so we can continue to offer and even expand our service!
