Lighting Up Brentwood et al - up to 10/12

So it's been a busy couple of weeks. The beginning of December saw National Tree Week, and we had a visit from the Tree Warden at Brentwood Borough Council to tell us all about it. The snow made getting in to work difficult for many of us across the borough and Phoenix presenters were no exception. Andrew Howard, head of road safety at the AA told us how to look after our motors in the freezing weather. We also spoke to Kimberley Rowley from Volunteering England about International Volunteers Day on 5th December, something that is of course very dear to the heart of any community radio station; and Anne Joshua directory of pharmacy at NHS Direct gave us some usual advice on treating the norovirus with reports of the nurse-led advice line currently fielding 4,000 calls a week regarding the winter vomiting bug.

Certainly a highlight of my time here at Phoenix FM was the honour of being asked to compere at the switch-on of Brentwood's Christmas lights on 2nd December. Not to leave the listeners out, those who chose not to brave the snow could hear everything on the Drive show with Ed Wellman assisting in the studio whilst I broadcast from out and about.
