Eastbourne Youth Radio has been put on hold again due to schools being closed.

It was due to have taken place from January 20-22.

Organiser Tim Sorensen said: “With schools now closed until at least after February half-term, you will not be surprised that EYR is sadly postponed once again.

“Until we know more from government and to avoid unnecessary re-organisation, we will not be setting any new dates for the time being.

“Rest assured that we will bring EYR to the airwaves once again when it is possible and safe to do so.”

Eastbourne Youth Radio broadcast for over 50 hours on 87.7FM from studios at East Sussex College last November.

Almost 1500 young people aged 5-19 from 18 schools and colleges took part together with representatives from business and the local community.

EYR was registered as part of Global Entrepreneurship Week, Parliament Week and helped to promote “Change Starts with Us” as part of Anti-Bullying Week.
