Shine Radio puts local primary school children on time checks

All the sponsored time checks on Petersfield’s Shine Radio are being presented by young children from the area.

Kids aged between 7 and 11 from Sheet Primary School have recorded audio for every minute and hour of the day.

Shine Radio volunteers produced more than seven hundred possible time checks from their voices so the children’s “Shine Time” recordings will appear every hour on the radio.

Headteacher of Sheet Primary School, Julie Robinson said: “What a fabulous opportunity for our children to practise their oral presentation skills in a fun and interactive way, local children on local radio – how great is that!”

Shine Radio co-founder Stephen Martin said: “Petersfield’s Shine Radio is about local voices, local stories and trusted local information. It’s entirely fitting that children from our community get to keep the town on time.”
