the former radio station for Dorset County Hospital

Long Service Awards 1999

Long service certificate

Congratulations to a number of Ridgeway Radio members who recently were presented with Long Service Awards by the Chairman of the West Dorset General Hospitals NHS Trust Robin SeQueira. Also receiving awards at a ceremony at Dorset County Hospital were around 40 or so other Volunteers from such organisations as the WRVS, St John Ambulance, Red Cross and the 32-year-old Hospital League of Friends.

Hospital broadcasting first began in West Dorset more than 45 years ago and three of the station's current members are still producing programmes after 32 years.

"The Trust values the experience and loyalty that these long serving volunteers have brought to the local health service and the presentation of awards is a way of saying 'thank you' to them," said Mr SeQueira.
