Nusrat Ghani, MP for Wealden, has celebrated Local Radio Day with Uckfield FM, broadcasting live from Uckfield High Street.
Uckfield FM were broadcasting live from Uckfield High Street on Friday 15 October in celebration of Local Radio Day. The day, organised by Local Radio Alliance, is an occasion to not only celebrate but also strengthen the connections that local radio brings to communities, to industry professionals, and to individuals.
The theme of this year was "Love your Place" and Nusrat caught up with presenter Tony Williams and Jacqui Rushton on the fantastic local businesses keeping the town a vibrant community, medical centres who have worked tirelessly to deliver the vaccine and keep Uckfield residents safe, and all the wonderful Wealden Heroes from Uckfield that have gone above and beyond during the pandemic.

Nusrat Ghani said: "Uckfield is a fantastic town, which focuses on the local community whilst also having international links reaching far and wide across the globe. Our community radio stations are real lifelines to many constituents, providing an invaluable medium to share local information and unite out communities. Uckfield FM are a well-trusted, fantastic asset run by local people for local people. I enjoy my monthly catch ups on air with them to discuss local matters and national campaigns. It was a pleasure celebrating Local Radio Day with Uckfield FM and catching up on all things Wealden.”
