At 3:33pm on 3/3/23 we officially opened our newly established premises at 9 Lilydale Road, Healesville Victoria, alongside the new Lions Den op shop. Sheah Sutton (Community Broadcasting Foundation), Declan Kelly (Community Broadcasting Association of Australia) - pictured here - also Yarra Ranges Councillor Fiona McAllister, State MP Cindy McLeish, Federal MP Aaron Violi, Yarra Valley FM President Greg Carrick and all of the committee from Healesville Lions (who have generously made available the building on a long term lease) and many local community members were on hand to help our VP Bruce Argyle and committee member Kim Harris celebrate this historic occasion.
Progress so far could not have been achieved without the generous support of your donations and the massive, exacting work put in by Graeme Peers and an extraordinary team of volunteers over many months.
BUT WE'RE NOT THERE YET
To complete the full relocation of the studios and transmission equipment and to construct an accessible entry and toilet, we appeal to listeners and supporters for one last donation.
Please consider making a secure credit card donation today via the link below. Your investment in our long-term future will be much appreciated.
