Snitterfield Village Fête
Radio Warneford recently took part in the 2017 Snitterfield Village Fête, providing OB facilities.
The theme of the fête this year was "Back To The Future" and featured a huge assortment of stalls and attractions.
The fête played host to classic cars, Morris Dancers, a Pimms tent, dog show, Stratford Strummers, crafts, barbeque and a lot more!

The annual fête raises funds for local projects in the village.
We have added a new clip to our RadioWarneford YouTube channel.
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.
