AwardsForAll-200We are delighted to announce that East Lothian FM has been awarded an Awards For All grant of £10,000. We applied for the money to help us relocate to a brand new studio in Tranent.

Our studio on Market Street, Haddington has always been small. It was big enough to get us started, but with an ever growing band of volunteers and an international audience that grows every day, it was never going to be our long term home.

The rooms in Tranent will give us much needed space and the flexibility to expand as well as improving disabled access and increasing comfort generally. In the short term we will create a custom built studio, with new equipment and space to accommodate guests and bands. In the longer term, we will have the space to create a second studio. This will give us facilities for training and recording.

East Lothian FM Chairman, Andy Morris said:

We are absolutely delighted to be awarded this grant. We have been planning a move to bigger premises for some time and with the help of Awards For All we can bring these plans to fruition.

This is just the start of a very exciting time for the station. The support we have received has been  phenomenal and I would like to thank everyone involved with the station as well as our local community for being behind us all the way.

Stay tuned to East Lothian FM and to the website for more announcements coming soon. When we get more details, we’ll post them here first!
