Testimonials received....

103 The Eye broadcasts Wellbeing Announcements several times a day, kindly sponsored by Melton Care Services, telephone 01664 569943. Here are some of the testimonials we have received about the feature:

I believe the Health promotion programme on 103 The Eye is extremely valuable and interesting to the local Community. It allows residents to hear about any health promotions, and gives them good and relevant advice on health issues - be that talking about food, or wellbeing.

Items like Swap your Slippers allow elderly people to take in their slippers and be issued with a new pair helping to reduce trips and falls in the home thereby reducing the cost of treatment to the NHS.

Local people can also email or telephone to ask any relevant questions they may have. The programme can also highlights services such as GP referrals for exercise.

Pam Posnett MBE, Cabinet Member for Health, Leicestershire County Council


We have had several opportunities to talk about our volunteer programme, the Leicestershire Master Gardeners, and the Melton Community Allotment where some of our volunteers support new food growers in and around Melton. It has been an excellent means of raising awareness of both the services that our volunteers offer and of inspiring listeners to have a go at growing their own food.

Alison McGrath, Coordinator, Leicestershire Master Gardeners
Thank you for putting out the postponement notice for our Annual Open Meeting of the Patient Reference Group.

We are so grateful for this facility - it is such a bonus for our Group, giving us the opportunity to publicise important health related matters free of charge - as we have no budget allocation.

Best wishes and renewed thanks,
Jane Horn, Chair of Latham House Patient Reference Group

We are about to embark on the next two months releasing quite a substantial number of new radio fillers (around 20+). We are grateful to all radio stations who are able to support our impartial public health or welfare causes, helping communities, by airing these - communicating worthwhile messages.

Thanks very much to you at 103 The Eye for your support !

On behalf of the Old Dalby Day Committee I thank you for your help over the past few days. You broadcast our appeal for new volunteers and I am delighted to tell you that you reached further than we thought.

We have several new volunteers because of you. For anyone reading this, we need more, however, the event is so big. If you can help, please get back to me here. Thanks again.

Secretary of Old Dalby Day
being held on August Bank Holiday Monday 2018.

Dear Christine – Thank you very much for inviting me to join in to Ling’s programme on Tuesday. It was lovely to meet her.

The concert was a great success. The church was full with over 350 people in the audience. I think we will have made £3,000 for St James’ Church, Burton Lazars, in memory of Sandy. 

Thank you for your help. Best wishes.

Dear Christine – I would sincerely like to thank 103 The Eye in helping us to promote village events. Our recent village hall Nearly New Sale was a great success this weekend despite the dreadful weather, but we had a good day following your help in promoting the event on both your website and on air.

Your continued help in promoting our village events is invaluable. My very best wishes for the future. 

Kind regards, Brian Hawken, Thorpe Arnold Village Hall - March 2018

Dear Christine

I am writing to thank you for broadcasting the 'promo' re the open day at the Hamilton Lawn Tennis Club on  25 March. I'm glad to say that the open day was well supported by juniors and adults and it was very encouraging to see so many people enjoying coaching.

Several people joined the club on the day and others showed interest in returning for more coaching. Today there were several juniors who came in on the open day returning for another session so the Open Day was a success.

Many thanks again for your help.

Best Wishes, Maggie

103 The Eye intensively advertised The Hi Fi Wigwam Show at Scalford Hall in the days leading up to the event on 19 March, and we had a really good attendance of visitors.

The station's presenters Big E and Jan The Legend did a great outside broadcast, and a big charity raffle staged on the day raised a massive amount of £3,390.40 for cancer research.

Thanks to everyone involved in helping to make this event a success.

Hi Christine
Just to let you know that we had a really successful jumble sale. We raised near £800 for our church fund
earlier this year.

When we asked people how they heard about it, several people said they had heard it on your radio station 103 The Eye or read your calendar.

That's great to know we can rely on you to publicise our events! A really big thank you!

Liz Vear, Hickling.  April 2016.

Hi Christine

I just want to say a massive thank you from myself and everyone at Countesthorpe Community College for your participation at our Careers Day. I know that a lot of preparation goes into planning the talks, alongside your attendance on the day, so thanks for taking the time out to support these students.

All of the Year 10s are coming up to a crucial age where they will need to decide what they want to do after college so this experience is vital for them to learn about the world of work and help with their choices. Without the input of our business volunteers they wouldn't get such a valuable experience and the event wouldn't be the success that it is. It is truly appreciated. Once again thank you for your support.

Best regards,

Hi Christine

I came to see you for a chat a couple of weeks ago, we are a group of amateur artists who meet in the Toy Soldiers band room each week.

Just to let you know that we raised £204 last Friday at the Macmillan Cancer Support coffee morning.

It was lovely to meet you all and thanks for the air time.

Okay guys! Just wanted to say again a huge thank you for mentoring me over the summer on The Eye! I had the best time and I am soooo pleased to announce that I have my very own show on Lush Radio at Uni, 2-4 on Friday! It would be great if you guys could tune in and again many thanks for everything, I wouldn't have the confidence or knowledge to do the show if it hadn't been for you both!

Hello Christine - just to say a huge thank you for all the publicity you gave to Eastwell Fete this year (and for quite a few past years). The regular coverage was fantastic, and I'm sure it encouraged many people to come along. We have had comments that this year attracted a record number of visitors.

We raised a total of £3,753.68, which is by no means a record in itself, but it is certainly a satisfying total and will go a long way to help paying the parish share. So - many, many thanks. Your help is really appreciated.

Sue Watford - Eastwell Fete Committee 2015

Dear Christine, I am just writing to let you know I enjoy listening to your station, particularly to Gareth and Ryan who present the Rock 'N' Roll Show from 6-8 pm on Tuesdays and Dennis Tarry 8-10 pm on Wednesdays.

Gareth and Ryan have implemented an utmost professionalism when presenting the show with an intermix of 50s and 60s quality music, always give me a mention, and have all my requests – some obscure. They also have a useful banter that makes me laugh and I can see why the station is popular and has won an award.

Also my favourite is Dennis Tarry presenting 60s music on Wednesdays 8-10 pm. Dennis plays all my requests, some obscure. He is a complete gentleman, very professional and I thoroughly enjoy the interaction with him on the telephone. He makes my nights highly enjoyable. 

It is nice to know a station like yours involves the public and I would like to express my thanks to you and Patrick for ringing me back. It demonstrates you both have time and patience and respect for me – well done! Finally, just to say thank you – keep it up.

Kind regards, Marko from Wollaton

Dear Christine, Patrick and all the team at 103 The Eye

Many many thanks for supporting our music and vintage and classic car night in Melton town centre on June 26, 2015. Without your technical skills and support, and professionalism by Mark Frisby I am sure the event would not have been so much a success. Hundreds of people attended and had a brilliant night, thanks to our sponsors the BID. We are now planning next year’s event on Friday, 24 June. So can we have the same arrangement please, possibly with Mark doing the continuity.

Thank you once again, Nigel Keep, organiser

Hello Christine and all at 103 The Eye,

We at John Ferneley College would like to thank you sincerely for your contribution to our annual Industry Day. The students were very excited to be given the opportunity to be interviewed by people for a ‘real’ radio station and to then hear this a few days later on your Sunday show.

We appreciate all you do for the college and for the community and feel Melton Mowbray and the surrounding areas benefit immensely from this radio station.

Thank you once again and we look forward to next Industry Day!

Yours sincerely,

Di Featherstone, Careers Adviser

Hi Christine and Patrick,

Following our session with you on the radio, we had a very successful concert at Long Clawson Church. I would like to say a very big thank you to you all at 103 The Eye.

Also through the community radio could you thank all the people that helped from the group that served tea and cakes to those that put out the posters and handed out the programmes.

Thanks also to St Remigius Church for hosting the concert, and to the Melton Mowbray Building Society and Long Clawson Dairy for their donations.

We managed to raise an excellent amount of £950 to go to Cancer Research. 

Thank you all

Hi Christine

We would like to thank you for a very interesting evening last night when we visited your studio. The Scouts all enjoyed hearing about the community radio and how it all works.

You certainly have an enthusiasm for it and we could also see how much hard work you put in to make it all run smoothly.

Thank you again

Dear Christine and Team.

I would just like to say a huge 'thank you' for inviting me back as a guest to your radio station this afternoon. I thoroughly enjoyed my time on air with Ling and Sue.

As well as being interviewed about my business and background, which is very beneficial, it gave me a very good insight as to how tight timings are when you're running a radio show.

Ling and Sue made me feel very welcome and comfortable in the studio; they make a great double act.

Please pass on my thanks to them, it was great to meet them both.

Kind regards

Mary Hughes

Bingham Parish Church would like to thank 103 The Eye for participating in our recent successful Christmas Tree Festival.

Not only did they provide a decorated Christmas Tree to join the 85 others on display in our lovely old church but they also gave us very welcome publicity on their website and in their local news items on air.

They also attended our Preview and Official Opening where they interviewed our acting bishop Richard Inwood. Their coverage gave us publicity in areas further afield and we’re sure helped to bring visitors from some of the outlying villages in the Vale.

Anthony Watts
Secretary to the Festival - December 2014

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 different people.


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 the future.


Yours sincerely


Sarah and Graham Shipman - December 2014....


....And Lauren herself said:

"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. "

Hello Christine

We 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 Peter's Church.

Thank you.

Sandra Leeson - Church Warden

Dear Christine and Patrick

I just 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 Project.

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.

Kindest Regards

Peter Keast, St Mary's Church in Melton

Email from Chris and Jenny Scroby

Hi Christine,

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 Ground

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.

Kindest regards, Danny P
Help For Heroes - 10 DJs 1 Night charity event held on 27 September 2013

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

Just a 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.

So please 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. Thank you.

Nigel Keep, 54A King Street Coffee Shop, Melton Mowbray

Received from Ivor Vaughan CBE, owner of Rearsby Business Park, after our coverage of the Auster Aircraft commemoration plaque unveilling ceremony:

Dear both,

I listened to The Eye this morning. Excellent broadcast of events at
Rearsby. Very professional. Good quality broadcast. Good local radio. Great choice of music by the way.

Ivor Vaughan

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 Chambers – Hickling

                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.

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 best.

Hi Jonny,

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!

Thanks again!

Laura Altanyzn - Melton Borough Council

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 appreciate it.

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.

Thanks again,

Sue Watford

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.

Cara Lilley


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.

Pamela Smith and Pete Devoto - Melton Stroke Club

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.

I  would like to thank 103 The Eye radio station for their interview and help with my recent housing problem. I have moved out of my bedsit flat and into a fully adapted disabled bungalow and I feel that the air coverage along with other factors helped me.
Once again, many thanx.

Dear Christine and all at The Eye.

A big thank you for all your support  given to Georgie whilst on her work experience at The Eye last week. What a fabulous time she had! and what fabulous people she met! You would not believe how proud I am of Georgie to be asked to join your team. She is over the moon! Thank you soooo much!

Words cannot express the joy and gratitude I feel to you all!

Kind Regards, Kim ( Georgie Spencer mum)

Hi Jonny,

Thank you to you and Billy Ray for coming out to record at the Kathleen Rutland Home on Friday, we’ve been listening to the show this afternoon and it sounded great.

It came across really well and we really appreciate the time you took to record and edit the piece to highlight the great work that is taking place within the home and the staff and residents there.

Best wishes,

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 Eye.

What can I say, but a HUGE “Thank You”, once again, for all your help at the Victorian Fayre.  We could not have done it without you and your team.  I do believe that we had the highest number of visitors ever to the fayre this year.  A lot of that can be attributed to THE EYE for all your hard work in promoting it prior to the event.

DEC 'warmly supports' 103DEC Crisis Appeal by 103 The Eye

"This is the first famine in a century that should never have known famine. Thousands

of people have already died and millions are on the edge of survival. The most vulnerable  are the children and the elderly.

"Yet a little money makes a real difference to these
precarious lives, which is why the Disasters Emergency Committee warmly supports the all-day East Africa Crisis Appeal by 103 The Eye on Saturday 30 July.  Thank you and your listeners for helping those in so much need."


Brendan Paddy - Communications Manager
Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC)

Ian - You and the rest of the 103 gang deserve great respect for having such a lively energetic show and vibe from the music you play and the way it's passed over the airwaves! Keep up the good work all at 103 The Eye. It's been a pleasure.

Matt Wilcox (Matt - Blue Eyes) Compere Glastonbudget 2011

May I thank you as Egerton Ward Councillor and also on behalf of the RAGE (Residents' Action Group Egerton) community group for the wonderful support your station has given us over the past year, and in particular for the excellent advertising of our latest Open Garage community scheme. With your help, the recycling scheme has got off to an excellent start and I'm sure will not only prove of great benefit to the local community but will greatly help with the reduction in 'fly tipping' we're hoping to achieve.

Many, many thanks.
Trevor Moncrieff
Melton Borough Councillor - Egerton Ward

We would like to express our grateful appreciation to 103 The Eye for its kind support of our recent Christmas tree festival. Not only did you sponsor a Christmas tree but you gave excellent coverage of the event, giving us very welcome publicity. In particular, we should like to thank your reporter,  Christine, for the time she spent inspecting the trees so that these could be described in detail, and for interviewing our rector. As you are aware, the primary purpose of the festival was for us to work with the community for the benefit of the Parish Church which has been part of that community for many hundreds of years and its Parish Hall, itself a much-used community facility. Your support was a good example of the type of partnership we enjoyed with many other commercial and charitable organisations. we are pleased to report that the festival raised in the region of £4,200.

Pam and Chris Page
Co-ordinators of Bingham Parish Church Christmas Tree Festival 2010

Just wanted to say a big thank you to all at 103 The Eye for your amazing support for the Connexions Compass Event. I know a lot of the young people who visited were fascinated with your exhibition.

Please pass on our thanks to Norman, Tag, Jon and everybody who gave up their time to help us out.

We really appreciate your support.

Regards, Clive Newman
Connexions - Melton and South Charnwood

Thanks for giving a shout out on the radio for our charity arts and crafts day. The publicity was marvellous - people kept hearing the event mentioned - and it was well attended with the church full. The day raised a good amount for the RAINBOWS Children's Hospice. I've let people know you're on the air and you now have some extra listeners.

Jackie Wallace, Garthorpe

We just wanted to say thanks for coming to our school fair on 19th June. We thought you did a great job and we had a very successful day. Thanks again

Many thanks for your help with publicity for our concert. The audience really enjoyed their world tour in music - despite it being a hot and sticky night. We shall be sending LOROS £528. Thanks again for your support.

Hazel Collier for Global Harmony

Thank you for the opportunity to promote Compost Awareness week recently. Janet and I really enjoyed  the experience and were made to feel very welcome and relaxed by your team. We were able to make the case for home composting as the greenest way of disposing of kitchen and garden waste and to talk about the work of Leicestershire volunteer Master Composters.

I have been looking for some time for a regular radio slot to talk about green issues including composting, recycling and all household waste reduction methods - what's new, seasonal ideas, answering questions etc. This subject usually does provoke a lot of interest in the community.  I would be happy to come over  to the studio say once a month if you think it might be useful.

We also gained a fascinating insight into community radio and the great work that you do. Thanks again.

David Cannon, Leicestershire Master Composter
Thank you  to 103 The Eye for inviting me into the studio on Sunday February 21st to talk about my life in, and involvement with Barnardo's, prior to my talk at Sage Cross Methodist church the following week.

I was made to feel very welcome by all concerned and found it a relaxing and laid back experience.

I am always happy to talk to any club, organization or individual about Barnardo's as it is vital that the charity are kept in the public eye because the work Barnardo's do to help families and their children is a vital service in the community.

Once again, a big thank you.

 Alan Dearman (Member of Barnardo National Council)

I write to thank radio 103 The Eye very much for sending along Ian Bott and James Hall to record Ian’s Sunday evening show at Old Dalby Village Hall during ‘Sunday Sizzle’ breakfast on Sunday 28th February. 

What a novelty, the hall was full, the presenters entertaining, the food fantastic! and to top all that we raised £170 for British Heart Foundation.

Once again a big Thank You!

Clare Wright - Chair Old Dalby Village Hall Committee

I have just got a new internet radio and tuned to The Eye. Please pass on congratulations to whoever came up with the Sunday afternoon format.

I do not know the name of the lady on the show. I did hear her say she was sitting in for someone who was snowed in, but I guess the format would have been the same anyhow. I liked the feature on the Mayor's concert - that was REAL COMMUNITY RADIO.

Now I've got The Eye on the memo I will have to listen to the Drivetime Jock - I heard he is quite good !  My wife and I have both enjoyed the refreshing change to the bland pop/rap that most of the others put out. Once again tell them well done.

Regards Mick Pell







Sherard Primary Carol Concert

Thank you very much for broadcasting some of this concert.  It was a lovely performance and I know the children had worked very hard to learn the songs.

Thanks to all those who put so much work in to enable the concert to go ahead.


Tiffany Smith-Cameron - Parent Governor

I really enjoyed my week at The Eye and I enjoyed it so much that I hope to come back. Everyone I met over the week was really welcoming and on the Friday I was really sad to leave.

I learnt so much about the technical side of a radio station and the presenting and I think that this experience has been very valuable for me. It was definitely worth the effort of finding my own placement because I have had the best time and will always remember this week. I do hope that I will return because it really was so much fun.

So thank you to all the team at 103 The Eye for making this experience so enjoyable but especially Christine who has taught me a lot to do with journalism and for organising so many interesting activities for me to take part in.

Kitty Broome - Belvoir High School, Bottesford
(student on work experience)

Thank you for the opportunity to read some of my poems on air a week last Sunday.  After the initial nervousness, I quite enjoyed myself, I hope your listeners did too.

Please pass on my thanks to Patrick and Jerry, who made the whole experience less frightening because of their friendliness.

I would like to take you up on your offer to record some more, as mentioned by yourself, and look forward to hearing from you.

Regards, Jill Palmer


Many thanks for interviewing me on the radio to promote our charity event. Just to give you an update on the Barcelona bangers launch party. The night was a fantastic success for all involved and in total we raised £1500 for LOROS (the Leicestershire Hospice). The auction alone made £750.

Not only did we have people come to the event directly from the interview, but we also sold the auction lot you offered of an hour on the radio for £65 – all of which goes to LOROS.

This thanks comes from all of the Magnificent 7 Team.  Keep up the good work!

Scott Topliss

 I listened to your recording of the Town Estate Band Concert on The Eye on Sunday morning. The recording was very professional and entertaining and brought the whole event back to life!

Several people who missed the actual concert said how nice it was to hear a recording of the event, and that it was truly a service for the local community - well done.

Please carry on providing this extremely useful and entertaining Community Radio Station. 

Richard Sage, Senior Townwarden

The return of this year’s Melton Mowbray Country Fair was boosted by the help of presenters and staff at 103 The Eye who supported the Fair by providing on site commentary at the event. A host of presenters kept visitors informed and amused throughout the day  which helped the event go with a swing. Our thanks for the on-air and website publicity given to the event. This publicity has helped to put the fair back on the Melton Events calendar.

Plans for next year are already underway and we hope that more local groups, craftworkers, entertainers and local food producers will want to get involved. Many thanks 103 the Eye!

Sallie Hooper - Co-ordinator Leicestershire Food Links 

Thank you for your assistance.

I came onto your community programme to talk about the Special Constables and a recruitment event we were holding at the Local Police Station. From all the publicity and support we have received we had a very successful event and exceeded our expectations,

 Thank you to 103 The Eye for helping Melton Police achieve its goals.

Please can I say a big thank you to all of The Eye team for advertising my village barn dance all of last week. It took place on Saturday 1st November and was a great success.

We have raised £971 (£612 on the night) towards the Waltham Church repair fund. Thanks to all who attended. - RIKY FENTON

Congratulations and best wishes on the 3rd Anniversary of The Eye. Long may your popular and successful Radio Station continue!

"On behalf of the Open Day Working Group at Brooksby Melton College, I would like to thank 103 The Eye FM for attending and staging the live broadcast from the event. Students, staff and visitors enjoyed seeing a live broadcast, especially as it was delivered from the Old Hall where there was a constant stream of visitors enjoying gourmet coffee and cakes.

"The whole live broadcast was professionally delivered and I do hope that your audience enjoyed the event commentary as much as we did giving the live interviews across a whole range of subject areas. It was also a great opportunity for some of our students to be interviewed and for them to have the chance of sharing some of the exciting things which they’d been involved with on the day. 

"It is a credit to the radio station the professionalism of the presenters as I know the day was very tiring as it required a high level of concentration."

 Jane Lloyd, Marketing and External Liaison Co-ordinator.
"I would just like to thank all the volunteers at 103 The Eye for your help towards my dissertation. As I am sure you are aware this is a major part of my BA (Hons) Media & Communications degree at Birmingham City University and the help from 103 The Eye has proven extremely useful and interesting within my research of Community Radio.

After completing my dissertation I have now received my grades and will be graduating with a 1st Class Honours degree.
Once again many thanks to all the team who contributed towards my research and good luck with all the broadcasting, training, fund raising etc in the future.
Kind Regards,
J.Dormer - Birmingham City University Graduate

"On behalf of all of us on the May Festival Committee, and indeed the villagers of Wymondham, I would like to say a big 'thank you' to you and the 103 team for attending our event and hosting the proceedings.  The service you give to events in a small rural community such as ours is integral to their success and fund raising and the day was indeed a success !

"We would certainly support you in any bids for sponsorship or funding by way of testimony to the valuable contribution you make to the Melton Borough.  Thank you again and please pass on our appreciation to the team - you made the day!

From Annie Curtis - Wymondham May Festival Committee

On behalf of the Church Fundraising Committee, I would like to thank you most sincerely for your kind promise for our Auction of Promises held on 13th June as part of the Stathern Festival.

The auction was a great success and we raised over £2000. Many thanks again for your support of our event. It was very much appreciated.

With very best wishes, Sally Fagan

I would just like to thank you all for giving out on air the details for the Old Melton evening which took place tonight.  We were delighted that we had 55 people attending including lots of visitors.  Several of them told me they had heard it on Melton Eye radio, so I thought it would be encouraging for you to know that fact!  

Many thanks for your help. Kind regards.




Hi 103, Just want to thank you for coming down to our Family Day on Sunday. We had 130 people on the day and everyone had a good time. In fact, one of the happy cricketers said he hasn't laughed so much in years.

The Challenge Cup was presented to Waltham Cricket Club who accumulated 92 points on the day beating Melton Mowbray Cricket Club by 20 points.

The day has raised approx £600 towards our junior team project for the coming years.
