Charity Winchester Radio aims to keep people socially connected: Winchester Radio provides local information on services and support for Winchester area in their regular shows, features, and local news bulletins. They also run national campaigns and features on-air, such as the mental health ‘60 second support’; Caring for Carers presented by Gyles Brandreth, and from Monday 18th May, PrimeTimers (which is a series for community radio for older people, and made by older people).
Winchester Radio continues to broadcast a local church service each week from the city on Sundays at 6pm. This allows people to stay connected with their faith during the lockdown.
