Interaction on the radio attracts more loyal listeners to Viva!

It’s been pretty hectic over Christmas and New Year where I’ve been pre-recording shows (for Christmas day, New Year’s day and holiday Monday) and also performing live broadcasts during our test transmissions. It seems that my idea of having regular music competitions has attracted a fantastic loyal following. I will keep these going as they are great fun to make up and play. We’ve also built a new chat room for the listeners at The Viva! programme goes out on Monday evenings at 7pm with ‘Old, Gold ‘n’ Rare’ music so, something different than you’d hear on other stations. Advertisers can have their own radio commercial at no charge while we’re in testing mode so, book your advert today and we’ll see you online to join in the fun.

Spotlight On! Get The Fog Out landfill councils, housing associations, window companies and ourselves cause by getting the foggy windows replaced.

Dave New has been running his own window company for the last 20 years, but has recently found himself replacing broken down double glazing units more often than ever.

So this is our opportunity to act against climate change and global warming. It is also a great option at this time where we a looking at some tough economical times. This is a great opportunity for people to save money on home improvements on getting the fog out rather than having replacement glass, where it also has the benefit of doing their bit for the environment at the same time.

Father And Son Go Green With Amazing New Process For Poole Residents After one evening of browsing the Internet, he found a new method which enables the repair of these 'foggy' windows instead of doing the initial replacing. The bonus of this new method is that it is easier, cheaper and a lot more environmentally friendly.

For info go to Telephone: 01202 675321 or 07974 106 145

Get The Fog Out is a process established by Crystal Clear Window Works in Canada over 5years ago. It allows us to re-engineer the unit to clear the fog and mist which builds up in-between the two panes of glass. Dave’s son Jamie opted to quit his job to join his dad and took on this venture and brought it to the Poole area to contribute into help making things greener and more economical for people. Of course, when you have moisture in between the glass, it contributes to loss of energy as moisture is a good conductor of heat transfer, therefore, reducing the effectiveness of double-glazed windows. Over 300,000 units have been successfully repaired in North America and now this process is now available in the UK and, of course, Poole so, if you look at it in the larger perspective, this amazing new process can substantially downsize the amount of

We would like to wish you all a Happy New Year for 2012 Poole Town and Oakdale has had a successful year in the reduction of crime. Crime figures show that overall crime is down when compared to the same period in 2010, with a distinct reduction in dwelling burglaries, vehicle crime and cycle theft. There has been an increase in commercial burglaries and we are working to address this. We would remind all business owners to be vigilant and ensure windows and doors are properly secured. Operation Protect is still in place targeting violent crime in the night time economy. This is proving to be successful in reducing and deterring the amount of incidents and is a long term operation. Crime trends show, at this time of year around the busy shopping areas, purse theft increases. Make sure you know where your purse or bag is at all times and be aware of people around you. Keep it close to you and zipped up. Never rest your bag on your shopping trolley or leave it unattended as this just makes it easy for thieves. Poole Safer Neighbourhood Officers are giving out lanyards with bells that you can attach to your bag and purse. When someone disturbs your property the bell rings and alerts you. This acts as a deterrent. For your free lanyard contact your local safer neighbourhood team on 101 or the team mobile 07919 290098. Please be vigilant and report any suspicious activity in your area. We need your help to tackle crime.
