A NEW Radio Station is taking to the airwaves, broadcast right here, in our district.

Langney Community Radio has recently been playing out the tunes across the internet for the past couple of months.

They are currently in the process of applying for a license to send out their shows across the FM frequency.

They’re also in talks with Langney Community Centre in Etchingham Road about the possibility of moving the Radio Station there.

Currently, Craig, otherwise known as ‘Corky’ to his listeners, has set up from a spare room at his home and transformed it into a studio.

If you’re interested in becoming a presenter for Langney Community Radio or assisting with the station, please contact Craig on 01323 740993 or visit www.langneyradio.co.uk.

You can also send across an e-mail to langneyradio@rocketmail.com. If you wish to view more on this story, please visit www.dvdpromotions.co.uk where you can see video footage of the station.

WE LOOK forward to another two matches with Eastbourne Borough Football Club this week - and we won’t have far to travel for either of them.

On Saturday this week (January 29) we play Grimsby Town at home, kicking off at 3pm.

Then on Tuesday February 1 at 7.45pm, we will playing Gateshead at Priory Lane. B

Both matches are in the Blue Square Premier, so six points will do nicely (if we win... WHEN we win both of them!).

Also, the derby fixture between Eastbourne Borough and Crawley Town, which was postponed on Boxing Day, has been rescheduled.

The two sides will now meet at Priory Lane on Tuesday, March 22, kick-off at 7.45pm. Please call 01323 766265 to book your tickets.

Talking of tickets, dozens of lucky Eastbourne children who won awards from their school were also given another prize - a free ticket each to an Eastbourne Borough home game.

The football club sponsored Bishop Bell School’s Bronze Awards and this year a record number of Year Seven pupils, 160 in fact, received them.

All 160 were also given a free ticket to Borough’s Blue Square Bet Premier clash with Histon on Saturday February 19.

THE President of Langney Women’s Institute is encouraging ladies to go along and join the group.

January marks the start of their new calendar of meetings and events. They meet at St Barnabas Church Hall in Kingfisher Drive on the fourth Tuesday of each month (except in August) at 7.30pm and the evening runs until approximately 9.30pm.

A varied programme is sorted for their monthly meetings. These range from demonstrations, including cookery and fashion to talks and discussions.

These are on the matters that influence and enhance our lives and community, both locally and worldwide.

The Langney WI currently has around 25-30 members of all ages and would like to invite more ladies to come along and find out about joining the modern day Women’s Institute - WI Inspiring Women.

You will find them most welcoming and further details can be obtained from Valerie by calling 01323 416491.

THROUGH the Hailsham based charity, The Quicken Trust, Bishop Bell School has had a long relationship with the community of Kabubbu in Uganda.

They’ve helped to sponsor education, medical, agricultural and residential development projects.

They have even sponsored a child’s education. ‘Irene’ is now in secondary education and there is some very exciting news.

An opportunity has arisen for Bishop Bell pupils to visit Uganda themselves next year in 2012!

The pupils will be able to get involved personally by helping these development projects along.

A school trip of approximately ten days is being sought for the July of 2012 and the pupils who are currently in Year 8, 9 and 10 will have the chance to take part in what could prove to be a life-changing (and challenging!) journey.

The visiting group will be able to experience first-hand the lives and culture of the people who reside in Kabubbu.

YOUR Langney market is on Saturday as always and follows up on Tuesday for some extras.

Please contact me on the details above if you have any news to report or events taking place here in Langney or Shinewater.
