Community Radio Station Rebranded

The community radio station, which launched in July 2012, has recently been rebranded. Initially named Bracin’ Radio, the station is now known as Lindsey Online and broadcasts from Fantasy Island. There are a number of shows being presented for the station, complemented by non-stop music during non-presented time slots. The station will feature local news and community focussed interviews as well as showcase musicians and bands.

Currently, the station is broadcasting online, with options for listeners to tune in via the website, Internet radio or mobile phone applications. There are plans for the station to broadcast over FM in the local area for 28 days in August 2013, which will support their application for a community radio licence.

Lighting Upgrade Improves Carbon Footprint

Lighting Upgrade Improves Carbon Footprint

Fantasy Island has recently upgraded the lighting used on rides and the pyramid. A specialist team from SaveMoneyCutCarbon.com worked in collaboration with the park to replace the original lighting and coloured effect bulbs. The new system uses cutting edge RGB LED technology, which is more environmentally friendly when compared to traditional light bulbs.

As well as lowering the carbon footprint of the park, the new lighting can be programmed remotely to display a fantastic range of custom patterns. Adam Garton managed the project implementation and described how the new system allows him to “control the lights across the park using wireless technology directly from [his] PC or even an iPhone.”
