Dear Christine and Everyone
at 103 The Eye,
We would like to thank you
for having Lauren with you for the week of her work
experience. She thoroughly enjoyed herself and learnt so
much during her time with you, we feel it has really brought
her out of herself.
From the first day when she
had the opportunity to speak on air, although at home we
could hear just how nervous she was, through the week where
on Thursday she was given the opportunity to ‘drive’ the two
hour show under the guidance of Billy Ray and onto Friday
where she spent the day at Candleby Lane with Mr Elliott and
the children and some very expensive kit!
There are many things she
speaks of including the television crew filming a
documentary, the guy from the Air ambulance, the reading of
the weather forecast and generally speaking to so many
We just can’t thank you
enough for allowing Lauren this marvellous opportunity and
she is looking forward to spending more time with The Eye in
Sarah and Graham Shipman -
"I want to thank you for a great work experience in
December, I really enjoyed it and learnt so much interesting
stuff about the radio and how it is run. Not putting it
mildly, it was definitely one of the most interesting weeks
of my life. I would definitely love to go back at some
point! Once again, thank you so much for a brilliant week. "
would like to thank you for arranging the interview with Dr
Margaret Herrington who talked about the arts and crafts
exhibition we held at Tilton-on-the-Hill on 30-31 May 2014.
We are sure you helped to make this a successful event. We
raised over £1,400 to help with the restoration work at St
Sandra Leeson - Church Warden
Dear Christine and Patrick
wished to thank you, and also let you know that the concert last
Sunday, featuring the Holman Climax Male Voice Choir from
Cornwall and the St Mary's Church Choir, was a complete success
and raised £700 towards the Church's Re-Ordering and Restoration
I do sincerely thank you and Karl for allowing me to visit the
studio to talk about the concert and feel that helped to raise
awareness of the concert and boost the audience, so we thank you
for the exposure and the Radio's support.

Email from Chris and Jenny Scroby
Thank you so much for inviting Chris and I back
to 103 The Eye to take part in your Community Focus radio show
with Steve and Patrick, to discuss our Awards.
You were all so kind and we really do appreciate
all the air time you gave us to talk about The Willows Natural
Burial Ground and Dying Matters.
A lot of the press releases we sent out, about our awards, were
completely ignored by others, we think because it mentions death
and dying and some people are afraid to tackle that. It is
comforting to know that your station is not afraid to discuss
such matters and handled the topic so well.
Once again many thanks
Jenny and Chris, The Willows Natural Burial
Hi Christine and
Patrick, it was great to see you both and be back in the studio.
The Help For Heroes night was a great success. On the night we
raised £1416.00 which was more than we expected. The support was
outstanding. I thank you for allowing me to come and promote the
night on air and for playing our promo. Keep up the good work.
Help For Heroes - 10 DJs 1 Night charity event held on 27
Thank you for promoting our open gardens event at Whatton-in-the-Vale,
which took place on Sunday 1 September. We had a record 221
visitors and raised around £1,200 for the National Gardens
Scheme which helps Macmillan Cancer Support and other charities.
Letter received from Nigel Keep, organiser of the classic car show and
summer music and dance festival, held in Melton Market place on
Friday, 28 June 2013
Dear Christine and All at The Eye
quick note to say a very big thank you for all your team's hard
work in helping to make the new Summer Music and Dance festival
a brilliant success. Without everyone's help we could not have
carried it off.
pass on my comments to all concerned and thank them very much.
Same date, last Friday in June next year. Hope you can make it.

Received from Ivor Vaughan CBE, owner of Rearsby Business Park,
after our coverage of the Auster Aircraft commemoration plaque
I listened to The Eye this morning. Excellent broadcast of
Rearsby. Very professional. Good quality broadcast. Good local
radio. Great choice of music by the way.
Dear Patrick and Christine – We
just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for the lovely piece
you aired about our open garden on Sunday.
We're sure it made people make
the effort to visit us, because we had over 100 people, who
probably all had a cup of tea and piece of cake, so together
with some plant sales we are able to pass on to the National
Gardens Scheme a sum of £502, which is really great.
So thank you both once again, and we hope your station goes from
strength to strength
Kind Regards, David and Debbie

I discovered this radio station last night
at 3am after a gruelling evening making the final edit of a
short film. It was a delight and a relief to hear such a
wonderful range of music on good ol' Frequency Modulation as
opposed to the usual, mundane material. I just wanted to say
thank you for getting together an excellent community station
and that I'm looking forward to my next night driving home just
to listen again. Charles-Philippe Bowles via Facebook
Thank you very much
for publicising the quiz evening which we held at the Castle
Inn, Eaton on Saturday, 20 April. We had a good attendance and
raised £151 towards research into Parkinson's Disease.
Many thanks for
allowing me time on air to promote the charity day, for the
Melton Mayor's Appeal. We raised over £500! Wishing you all the

I would like to say 'thank you' for letting Alex and I invade
your studio last week. We had a great time and it turned out to
be very profitable to our cooking sessions as 3 people heard us
on your show and turned up in addition to our others! Hurrah!

Christine, thanks for all your help in publicising the
Eastwell Fete this year. It's great having the opportunity to
talk about it on air - and it was an even greater help this year
having it plugged over the week before the event. We all really
The day raised a total of £3,220.00: in this current
climate of economic despair and gloom, we're very pleased with
the result. We certainly had a great day weather wise.
Hopefully I'll be in touch again next year, when we
celebrate our 20th Eastwell Fete.
Good morning Crackers,
I just wanted to
say a big thank you to 103 The Eye, for having me as a guest on
the show on Sunday to talk about the International Baby Loss Day
events that were taking place in Melton.
We had a huge
turn out for both the bulb planting and the wave of light baby
memorial service at St Mary's church. It means so much to all
those who attended to be able to remember their babies lost to
miscarriage, stillbirth or neo natal death, at these events.
Thank you for
letting more people know about this annual event which I'm
sure we will be back next year to promote again, if you'll allow
us! Thank you again for supporting Stephens Footprints
Baby Loss Support Group.
We'd like to say thanks for
publicising our coffee morning, bring and buy stall and
information session last week. As a result of the radio
interview with Jonny Mac, plus the publicity on your Local
Events Diary we had a good attendance. We raised £387.47 and
gained two new members for our group.

Christine, Thanks on
behalf of Simon and myself for last Sunday. We really do
appreciate the publicity you are allowing Asfordby FC. We
will continue to work with you and hopefully we will all benefit
from our working relationship.
Will keep in touch and look forward to being on air again soon.

Dear The Eye, Congratulations on an
excellent radio station. I would like you to pass on my kind
regards to John Burton, who presents us with his very special
Collection on Wednesday evenings.
What a knowledge he has attained over
the years about his beloved music genre. What John brings to the
show with this knowledge, makes his show such a wonderful
experience, great music, entwined with John's little gems of
knowledge, make this so much more than just a music programme.
Please let him know that I still
listen when I can, and I'm so pleased for him, that he has
finally achieved his dream of becoming a presenter.
Kind regards to John and all at The
Steve Hudson. Nottingham
