HFM's Wins Web Award

CMAWe've beaten off competition from radio stations across the UK to be awarded joint first prize in the Community Radio Toolkit Web Awards - A project of Radio Regen and The Community Media Association.

Our website has proved extremely popular since its launch in June, with thousands of people logging on every month.

It was selected as the joint-best on the basis of ease of use, welcoming messages, key features for radio station websites, clear invitations to get involved as well as their look and design.

Station Manager Barry Badger said: “WebshotWe’re delighted to receive this award as it recognises just how good our website is.

“A lot of time and effort goes into putting the content on the site and listeners have told us they really like it.

“To receive an award just nine months since we launched is fantastic.”

The website was designed by Market Harborough-based Net Magik, who continue to offer help and support.

The judging panel found the website offered a good representation of the local community with a dynamic feel and a clean look.

Panel members Michelle Doust and Bill Best of the Community Media Association considered it  “most inviting to potential volunteers. A very welcoming website that is easy to navigate”.
