MEANDER VALLEY community radio station MVFM 96.9 is looking forward to another great year, thanking members and sponsors for their ongoing support that has enabled the station to keep broadcasting and serving the community, promoting local organisations, events and businesses.

This past year has introduced a new committee, a renovated studio, additional equipment, different programs and music content, plus more members and sponsors.

The fortnightly Members’ Draw is now well-established, with three different members enjoying their prizes as their names come out of the hat each fortnight – the chance to win a $25 voucher from Wholesome House, coffee and cake for two at Mummabuzz Café, or a free gym pass for two at Body and Soul Wellness Studio.

The second offer commences on 1 August – discounts at local shops and businesses on presentation of a current 2019/20 member card.

Membership renewals are due on 1 July 2019, or July 2020 if you have recently signed up, and cost $30 ($20 concession) a year.

Listeners are invited to offer feedback on the past year’s efforts, and/or to become involved as program presenters themselves. Everybody at MVFM 96.9 is a volunteer and would love to welcome new members to their ranks.

Membership forms are available from the station at 59-61 Emu Bay Road, Bendigo Bank, Wholesome House, Mummabuzz Café and Body & Soul Wellness Studio.

Completed forms and remittances can be left at the Bendigo Bank for collection.

A 2019/20 Member Card not only comes with great rewards, but helps to provide another year of exciting community radio as well.
