In the last round of funding the Cat 107.9FM received a grant from the Co-op Local Community fund to upgrade the studios.
The funds received has allowed The Cat to rebuild and refresh both studio A and B. Studio B was completed earlier with the update of studio A being delayed due to Covid.
Technical Director Paul Simpson said “We’d like to thank the Co-op and their members for their fantastic support, the funds received far exceeded any expectation we had and has allowed us to update both of our studios. We would also like to thank Tony and Debbie at Window Wizard (Crewe) for the donation of material used in the building of the desk structure”.
Stuart Mackay the Co-op Member Pioneer Coordinator and also a volunteer at the Cat officially opened studio A.
Stuart said “One of the things that connect the Co-op and the Cat is the focus on the community and it’s great to see the co-op community fund being used in such a positive way to support the community at large. Members are currently supporting Cheshire Buddies, Inner Trust and Chance Changing Lives in the Crewe area and if you want to know more go to coop.co.uk/membership.
First to use the studio for recording was presenter Stephen Morris.
With the update complete, Studio A is now up and running and in regular use.
