RADIO DGH has praised the work of one of its volunteers who has sadly died.

Martin Etchells, pictured, passed away last week.

A spokesman said: “It’s with great sadness that we have been informed that one of our members, Martin Etchells, has passed away.

“He was the host of our Monday Afternoon show from 4-6pm and before this, he hosted the Monday evening show.

“Off air he was the treasurer of Radio DGH for many years and was always on hand to assist at fundraising events.

“He was also a volunteer in the Friends Shop and was associated with many athletic clubs both locally and nationally.

“Martin will be sorely missed by us and our thoughts and prayers are very much with Martin’s family and friends at this sad time.”
