Taking the show to the show!

honey and beesThe Girls Around Town will be making it three in a row this weekend, when they head out of the studio to broadcast live from the Nottinghamshire County Show for the third consecutive year.

During the show June and Tina will be chatting to guests from REACH, the County Show’s official charity for 2016, and the Nottinghamshire Beekeepers’ Association, just two of the many local organisations exhibiting on the showground during this flagship event in Newark.

Tune in or listen online between 10am and 12 noon on Sunday – there’ll be news too of some of the events and activities taking place during the day.

And if you’re visiting the show, why not head over to the SMC motorhome on stand number M13 near the Lady Eastwood Pavilion to say hello to the girls and some of their fellow presenters?

On the road again…

shopping evening - croppedIt’s that time of year, when June, Tina and Sue begin getting out and about again – yes, the Girls Around Town are back on tour!

They’re still waiting for the fully-equipped tour bus, complete with personal stylist, make up artist, hairdresser and the rest, but in the meantime the invitations are starting to arrive.

With cupcakes and chocolate, cosmetics and crafts just a few of the treats on offer, you won’t be surprised to hear that they jumped at the chance of enjoying a Shopping Evening this Friday.

And they don’t even have to travel too far for this one, because it’s at Barnby Road Academy, the home of Radio Newark

All proceeds from the evening go to the Barnby Road Friends Association, to be spent on the children at the school, and there’ll be a whole range of stalls selling gifts and goodies – what’s not to like about that?

On Sunday 15 May, the girls will be broadcasting live from the Nottinghamshire County Show – another shopping opportunity in the offing perhaps? – where they’re looking forward to meeting listeners and a couple of guests in the SMC motorhome between 10am and 12 noon.

Watch this space for more details of this and other tour dates – they’re planning a busy summer on the road and would love it if you’d drop by to say hello!
