Para-Fal: The haunting of The Poly

Poltergeist activity. Disembodied voices. The spine tingling feeling of invisible eyes burning into your back…The Poly in Falmouth has a foreboding reputation as the most haunted building in town. Maybe even in the whole of Cornwall. This Halloween season, Scruffy Mutt Youth Theatre invite you backstage for a guided paranormal tour of the sinister venue. If you are feeling brave enough that is. Because at Halloween the wall between the world of the living and the dead grows thin and in the clammy darkness of an empty auditorium, well, anything could be waiting for you. You have been warned. Visit The Poly in small groups and be aware...
Come and see which ghosts lurk where
A walking theatrical piece based across the Royal Cornwall Polytechnic Society... there are lots of stairs to climb and passages to walk so sturdy footwear and good mobility are essential. With four different time options: 5.30pm; 6.30pm; 7.30pm; 8.30pm with a maximum of 20 people in each group.

Women Only Radio Training

Women of Source FM

Women Only Radio Training

Source FM has a problem; only 20% of its presenters are female. Ever since the first day of broadcasting in 2009 the station has been heavily dominated by male volunteers, mostly with big record collections. However in 2016 Source FM is making a special effort to change.

Source FM is inviting any women (and girls) from the local area who have even the slightest interest in radio to attend a special ‘Women Only’ open day at Source FM on Saturday 10th of September 2016 from 10am to 1pm. The event will give attendees the chance to meet existing female Source FM presenters and talk to experienced BBC female journalists and to tour the studios to see just how easy it is to make interesting exciting radio shows. And, you don’t need to bring anything with you except for your enthusiasm.

Val Baker who is a presenter on Source FM and a member of their Executive Board said, “I know I’m biased but women do some of the most interesting shows on Source FM and also have some of the most interesting things to say in general. To be good on radio you have to be a natural speaker, anyone can learn the technology that’s the easy part, but not everybody has something interesting to say.”

Source FM are especially keen to hear from women who might be interested in developing a newly rejuvenated relationship with The Poly who have a series of interesting performances and talks coming up in the autumn that Source FM is hoping to cover. They are also interested in receiving proposals about any subject such as health, wellbeing and creative writing or mechanics, mathematics and engineering.

Station Manager Matthew Rogers said, "The Golden Microphone is given as a mark of gratitude and respect for commitment and outstanding behaviour at Source FM and no one has been more deserving of this reward than Ian Beaumont who works very hard for the station.

Tom Clements's 6 Hours on Exercise Bike Challenge on the 6th August!

A young Falmouth man with learning difficulties who was "lost without" his mother after she died of cancer will spend six hours on an exercise bike for Cancer Research.

Tom Clements, 23, is undertaking his six hour bike challenge to support the cancer charity and two other charities he volunteers for, Source FM and The Poly, at a fundraising event at the Falmouth Hotel on August 6.

Tom Clements who hosts 'Shake Up Saturday' on Source FM.

Tom Clements is doing his 6 hours exercise bike challenge in the Falmouth Hotel at 10.30am and he been training for 3 months in the falmouth hotel gym and been walking alot.

There is a reason why Tom is doing this challenge because three years ago Tom's mum passed away with cancer and it means a lot to him.  He just wants to give back to all the charities.

Tom has got learning difficulties, Tom's mum just helped him a lot. Making appointments, everything,  when his mum passed away it was so hard to realise his mum is not going to be there. These three years it's been difficult but Tom had to learn and do it on his own."

Since then Tom Clements, has been getting loads of support from his friend, Stacey Mannix in the past 3 years. Stacey has done alot for Tom and supported him through the tough times. 

Tom Clements would like to invite everyone who wants to come down to the Falmouth Hotel on Saturday to watch Tom and support him in his 6 hours challenge! 

Tom Clements is trying to rasie a total of £150-£200 at least to split between the three charities. 

Let's make this possible by supporting Tom with this challenge ahead to make his mum proud.

Please sponsor Tom Clements: https://crowdfunding.justgiving.com/tomclements .

HELFORD PASSAGE REGATTA

HELFORD PASSAGE REGATTA – BEST DAY OF THE YEAR ON THE RIVER

Helford Passage Regatta, which starts at noon on Saturday 6th August, is the perfect way to help raise funds for the RNLI at the same time as enjoying a wonderful day out on the beach. “The whole family can be as lazy or as competitive as they like, whilst still being able to support the wonderful work of the RNLI”, says Jenny Purdy, Committee Member.

As time and tide wait for no man, and the water will recede rapidly until low water at 3 pm, the swimming races will be the first events of the day, starting around noon. The kids’ fancy dress competition (age 10 and under) follows - the theme this year is ‘Heroes and Heroines’. During the afternoon, there will be boat races, land and sea races, plenty of beach races, sandcastle competitions, a tug of war, and hopefully an RNLI display. A barbecue and beach bar will be available throughout the day, there will be a tombola, cake and craft stalls, and a raffle with fantastic prizes to be won. The day will be rounded off with funk and blues music from Newquay-based band, The Big Sets, at 9pm on the Ferryboat Inn terrace.

Station Manager Matthew Rogers said, “I wanted to find a way to encourage Source FM’s presenters and stakeholders to attend the AGM and to tell us something about who they are and why they are involved with the station, this will help us to describe the existing Source FM community to the company who is doing the re-design.”

The AGM is open to anyone who wishes to attend however if you would like to stand for election to the Executive Board or vote for the next member to be elected then you must be a fully paid up member of the company, which can you can do here: http://www.thesourcefm.co.uk/Members Source FM also has an online questionnaire that it is asking members of the public to respond to here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/CZ8LY3J as part of the consultation process.

Unique Student Transport Scheme For The Fal River Area

Unique Student Transport Scheme For The Fal River Area

Fal River Cornwall, the private sector company which promotes the region, has teamed up with First Kernow and First Great Western once again to offer the only ferry, bus and train student transport scheme in the country.

The Fal Mussel Card UNI gives students and staff at Falmouth University and The University of Exeter (Cornwall Campus) access to travel on the trains, buses and boats of the region for a one-off, discounted cost.

The scheme was launched last year with great success, and will be rolled out again for new and returning students and staff this September.

Alex Carter, Managing Director of First Kernow, said the travel group was proud to be part of the innovative scheme: "We know that travel costs can be a major issue for students, especially in rural areas, and so we are pleased to be able to provide improved accessibility at a fixed cost."

The card - an academic version of the scheme available to visitors - means that students have access to unlimited bus travel between Falmouth and Penryn campuses, as well as on all First Kernow bus routes in Cornwall.

Branch line trains between Truro and Falmouth are included with the card, which has an annual commercial value of more than £2,600 overall.

The Mussel Card UNI can be used for unlimited travel on various ferries which navigate the Fal River, including the St Mawes and Place Ferries.

Students and university staff can also use their card for free travel on all Enterprise Boats services; the colourful fleet run between Truro, Falmouth and St Mawes via Trelissick Gardens and the King Harry Ferry and are a great way to explore the area.

Tim Light, Director of Fal River Cornwall, said: "The Mussel Card UNI is a cost-effective and sustainable way to travel to and from the university campuses. It also encourages students to get out and about and explore the fantastic scenery and attractions of the area where they have chosen to study; and they certainly won't be disappointed when they do!"

Encouraging students and staff to use public transport also reduces the traffic burden on busy roads in the area and allows for investment in bus, rail and ferry services.

Fal Mussel UNI Cards can be purchased for an entire academic year, and can be paid for in installments.

To find out more or to purchase a student or staff card online, visit http://www.falriver.co.uk/uni/about

New Series From Mac Dunlop Wednesdays from 13.45hrs

My Day Off is a series of 15 minute humorous monologues by Mac Dunlop

I always find it difficult to describe what a monologue is to be or not to be. My last series Unspoken Words had a simple soundbyte, it was “about a single word, and what a single word could inspire”, a series of humourous monologues that were held together by a single tenuous thread, a different single word each week. UW ran for forty 15 minute episodes on Cornwall’s The Source FM, and London’s Resonance FM between 2010 and 2012.

Now, having lost you in terms of my ‘elevator pitch’ time frame, I want to introduce you to what My Day Off is not:

1) it is not another Unspoken Word series.
2) it is not linear narrative (it accommodates the capacity of a single voice to trample all over sense and sensibility).
3) it is not real, it is a rapid fire approach to containing what happens next within a 15 minute linear time frame.
4) it is not unfunny.
5) I refer my honourable member to the answer I gave moments ago*.
*p.s. no search engines were harmed in the writing of this Press Release

Return of the Listen Again Service

Falmouth and Penryn Councillors Hear Listener's Plea

Listen Again

Cllr Brod Ross, Studio Manager Jerry Padfield and Cllr Chris Smith

Source FM listeners have been complaining that the station’s listen again service hasn’t been working properly since December. One of those regular listeners was Councillor Chris Smith of Penryn Town Council.

Frustrated by not being able to listen to his favourite shows Chris contacted station manager Matthew Rogers to let him know that he was willing to help resolve the issue by putting out an appeal on facebook. Within 24 hours Chris had raised £200. Backers included Mark Williams (Falmouth Town Council Clerk), Ciaran Clark (Actor), Cllr Candy Atherton (Falmouth Town Council), Andy Coote (Falmouth Business Club), Cllr Mark Snowden (Mayor, Penryn), Bob Bridges (Falmouth Rotary and Dementia Appeal), Andrew Edmonds (The Poly), Cllr Rowena Brock (Falmouth Town Council) and Chris Smith.

In March 2015 Councillor Brod Ross visited Source FM’s studios where he found Station Manager Matthew Rogers attempting to resurrect a dying podcast computer. When Clr Ross heard about the Source FM’s plight he pledged to offer £150 from his community chest, which combined with the offer from Chris Smith enabled station manager Matthew Rogers to purchase a new Mac Mini to host the service. 

Source FM’s studio manager Jerry Padfield wrote an original piece of software to host the listen again service and Miss Peapods Kitchen Café sponsor the service. You can now listen again to all your favourite Source FM programmes at www.thesourcefm.co.uk/podcast

Tell us what you think of Source FM

John Grierson needs your help!


In March this year, I’ll be starting some really important research into what makes Community Radio tick here in Falmouth and Penryn. And the project is all about you – The Source FM listener and follower.

I need people who are willing to participate in a focus group at an evening meeting, to be held in Penryn, at the Falmouth University campus. It will be a huge help to me and it’ll be extremely valuable for those who run the station and present the programmes. And it’ll be a lot of fun. Refreshments will be served, and travel expenses will be paid.

If you’d like to be considered for membership of the focus group, please could you send me an e-mail to communityradio123@gmail.com.  Or you could call me and leave a message if necessary on 07813 681 920.  I’ll get back to you as quickly as possible.

Thank you!

Pieces of Eight - Stories from the Salty Air

Pieces of Eight -Stories from the Salty Air

Pieces of Eight -Stories from the Salty Air

A series of short story audio allegories from writer and producer Mac Dunlop that take you on a journey around Falmouth town, from Greenbank Gardens to Tunnel Beach near Gyllingvase.  These wide eyed audio tales have been spun to reflect upon each story’s position on a map of Falmouth, and the workings of a writer’s imagination. 

There are eight Salty Tales in all, in part inspired by the old gold coin known as a Spanish Dollar, which could be split into 8 pieces of smaller currency known as “Reals”, or “royals” (where the term “pieces of eight originally comes from). Listeners and readers can contemplate the value of one or two pieces as they travel around Falmouth, or get a map at the Fascinate Information Point on The Moor during the Tall Ships Festival and set off on a journey round town to gather up the complete set of Pieces of Eight.   

 QR codes and conventional web links will be on display at each site, and the stories can be accessed using smart phones or digital media at each of the locations or listening points mapped around Falmouth during the tall ships weekend. A directive map with the audio web page listings along with further information is available from the Fascinate Information Point on The Moor, and at participating locations.  A printed page of each story will be available from at the different location so you can collect your own free Pieces of 8 pamphlet.
