Its been another busy month for me, hardly a time for a cat nap. The focus on the Cat this month was love and loneliness and I cant believe how many great groups support people in the local community. It was great talking to Joe Ashton about the Men in Sheds group, what a fab idea. I was so impressed with the work these men do, so talented and keeping themselves busy at the same time.
Cheshire East Carers Hub came in and spoke about the work that they do to support carers. What an important group, that supports those individuals that support others everyday.
I cant believe the great work that takes place in our local community and many of these organisations rely on the good will of volunteers like my great team at The Cat 107.9fm. Volunteering is such a great way to break loneliness, there is never a dull moment when I am with the team at the Cat.
If you are thinking of volunteering then CVS Cheshire East are able to help, they came in and spoke about the services that they offer, and there is really nothing they don’t know about volunteering.
As a larger cat I have always seen myself as a future boxer and was great finding out about the charity boxing match “The road to the Ring” from Ken and Pete. Sounds such a great event happening on 29th March, I am sure the station will promote more about it this month. I am hoping to get a ring side view!
I have been out and about again this month and one of the highlights was the launch of the Co-op in Reasdale Avenue. I met some great customers and even made friends with a few local dogs that were sat outside the shop. Spending the morning with the other two community groups, Looking After the Homeless (LATH) and Inner Trust, that have also been chosen to benefit from the co-ops community scheme.
If you would like us to benefit please vote for us instore or online at www.coop.co.uk and search for Reasdale Avenue Store.
I also had tickets to go and see Tom Gates at Crewe Lyceum with Neil from Drive Time, Kate from the Motherwell show and Lennon from #childrentake over. What a great performance, it was a great show for all the family. It was a funny and well acted, the stage graphics were fabulous. Well done to all involved, I might consider a career on stage!
As always we welcomed Cheshire East and Crewe Town on the station, always great finding out about the work they are doing in our local community.
I am already looking forward to March, where our Focus On the Cat is Women’s Service. I couldn’t make Crewe Womens Day yesterday as I was out with my good friend Garfield, but the day looked a great way to start the month. I look forward to telling you all about it at the end of the month. Please get in touch with the Cat team if you feel we can support you or your event in anyway. Remember we are the only licensed community radio station in Crewe and Nantwich broadcasting on 107.9fm.
