Budding radio DJs got first-hand experience at running a community station, as the North Fambridge Sea Scouts visited Caroline Coastal's Burnham studio.

The youngsters were welcomed by assistant station manager Joshua Holmes-Bright and presenter Michael Boot, who showed them the ropes.

Joshua said: “It was great to have the North Fambridge Sea Scouts in the studio and teach their young members about the importance of local radio.

"We’ve not had a group as large as that in the studio before, but they were all so well-behaved and showed a great interest in how live broadcasts are put together.

"We hope it’s not the last time we have them in the studio.”

Presenter and DJ Michael Boot described the visitors as "a delight".

He added: “They were a delight to have in the studio and asked many interesting questions. Some were very happy to talk on air, about their group and their achievements.

"The energy from them was amazing, and they were a truly lovely group who we would welcome again.”
