Radio Fox refurbishment – It’s happening!
17 July 2018 – In 2016 Radio Fox began a dedicated fundraising drive to buy a new audio desk and refurbish our main studio. You might have thought it had gone quiet since we reached our target and maybe you thought nothing had been happening. How wrong can you be?
Our engineering team have been very busy every week since we reached our target. Much tea has been drunk, plans have been drawn, new wall coverings applied, old floors resurfaced and new carpet laid, new lighting installed, new electric wiring and services, new computer wiring and services fitted. Through the sweltering heat of the summer the team have been sawing, drilling, sanding, wiring, gluing, spraying, staining, varnishing, painting, sweating chiseling, hammering, and tea drinking.
The first thing we bought was the new audio desk although it will be the last thing to be needed in the refurbishment. Currently the team have taken delivery of new furniture and are in the process of planning the layout of the new studio. So next we’ll be putting our carpenters hat’s on and getting out the hammer and nails.
At some point in the coming months everything will be completed and then we will be holding a grand opening and party for the new studio and inviting all the friends and benefactors of Radio Fox to celebrate. Keep your eyes on this website for the big reveal.
It couldn’t have been done without the many individuals, organisations, and businesses of Leicester and Leicestershire who gave their support including The Elms Social Club in Wigston, Caterpillar (UK), Pall-Ex, Asda, Next, Barratt Homes – North Midlands Division, Cambridge & Counties Bank, Taylor Bloxham, Squire Alarms Ltd, Ibstock Brick Ltd, Police Mutual, Leicestershire & Rutland Freemasons, Pukka Pies Ltd, HSBC Bank, and Ashfield Healthcare.
You’ll notice there are no photos here, that’s because we’re keeping it all under wraps until the great reveal.
