2nd February 2022- Royal Visit
Sheppey Matters, because of their array of fantastic projects including Sheppey FM, were honoured with a visit from HRH Prince Charles and The Duchess of Cornwall and many other dignitaries including; The Lord Lieutenant of Kent, The Lady Colgrain, the High Sheriff of Kent, Mr John Weir and MP Gordon Henderson.
Prince Charles was greeted by Project Manager Julie Nicholls and shown around he was very impressed with our radio station, he had his favourite songs played by presenters Maz Camilleri and Anna Gillingham-Sutton, Anna made him laugh asking him if he had brought his swimming costume and he even made a request for Jools Holland. Leaving the studio, Prince Charles approached Wayne Cordwell and had a lovely conversation about how the behind the scenes of the station is run, before finally meeting some of our youth presenters and giving them the opportunity to explain their Arts Awards and their war on waste project, the young presenters spoke eloquently despite being very nervous, well done to Anya, Lacie, Aimee and Martin.
Overall an amazing experience that we will not forget in a hurry, thank you to all Sheppey Matters and everyone else involved that made the day a success.
