On September 20th, 2012, Ofcom announced the award of two new community radio licences for services in Scotland. Community radio services are provided on a not-for-profit basis focusing on the delivery of specific social benefits to a particular geographical community or a community of interest.
One of the awards is to Crystal FM to provide a community radio service catering for all residents of Penicuik and its surrounding hinterland.
The Licence is awarded for a five-year period.
The Penicuik Community Education Association radio team will meet soon to advance the radio project that will provide a platform of communication for individuals, local organisations, sports clubs, businesses, community councils, Midlothian Council and our local schools to promote their news, activities and events across the airwaves to:
- Easter Howgate
- Milton Bridge
Opportunities to become involved in Crystal FM will arise as the radio team moves the project on for the benefit of all the communities within the radio service area.
