£4,890 grant for Porthmadog Radio Club

Congratulations to Porthmadog and District Amateur Radio Society who have been awarded a £4,890 grant from the Big Lottery Fund. PADARS spokesman Gary Brookes said: “It’s excellent news, and we are obviously very grateful to the National Lottery for the grant. We are a small club, but this is a massive investment, and a big opportunity to promote the society, and what we do in the area. We hope to now forge closer links with local societies to educate youngsters in the skills needed to operate radio equipment, skills which are very useful in a number of careers.”

The club meets monthly, every third Thursday at the Yacht club in Porthmadog harbour. The Yacht club premises are fully licensed, Hic!
