Snitterfield Village Fête
Come and have some fun this June at the Snitterfield Village Fête!
The theme of this year's fête is "peace, love and happiness" as Snitterfield heads back to the late 1960's for a traditional family day of fun.
There is extra fun for the kids this year with brand new bumper cars as well as face painting, Daisy the Donkey and games organised by the primary school.
Entertainment comes in the form of a display of Bhangra dancing along with the return of the fantastic dog show. Classic cars will also be on display.
Make sure you come and say hello to the Radio Warneford team who will be there to provide music and announcements before you head off to the tea tent for some refreshment.
The proceeds of the 2017 Fete went towards a new noticeboard on Church Road, room hire for the monthly Community Cafe run by SACC and weekly Community Craft Club run by Kitten von Mew.
Visit the official Snitterfield Fête website for more information.
New Edition Coming Soon!
The brand new 2018 edition of Radio Warneford's patient magazine is on the way!
The magazine is packed full of archive photographs and newspaper reports charting Radio Warneford's development from its first studio in a broom cupboard at the Warneford Hospital in 1973 to its current studio complex at Warwick.
You can also find out more about the service that we provide including our most popular record requests as well as some of the highlights to listen out for during the day.
The new magazine will be available free of charge very soon.
If you have got some free time on your hands and you are looking for an exciting new interest, then why not do something special for your community here in South Warwickshire.
Radio Warneford is on the lookout for new volunteers who have a few hours to spare each week and would like to help visit patients on the wards and collect record requests.
The station is currently looking to build a team of retired people, or those with a little bit of time on their hands, who can visit patients on the wards during the day. Although Radio Warneford's members visit patients each evening, there is often not enough time to chat about the pieces of music or comedy sketches that they may like to hear later that day.
We also have spaces in some of our broadcasting teams, both weekday evenings and on Sundays.
