Wandsworth Radio Noticeboard – 14th-20th May

Welcome back to the Wandsworth Radio Noticeboard! This week again looks like a fantastic week on the station so stay tuned as we continue to cover the WAF 2018!

Mind Your Business launched in March.

We are so delighted to have had two shows nominated for the Mixcloud Online Radio awards 2018. Dom has been presenting Walking Wandsworth for a while now, a podcast show which documents some fantastic walks in and around the borough. Meanwhile, Nicolette has been with the station for several years now and rebranded her show to be a part of Female Friday; her new programme Mind Your Business (left) details some of the problems for women starting businesses and documents some of the best ways to overcome such problems. Please vote for them here (votes close on Sunday 20th May): Mind Your Business and Walking Wandsworth.
