Arrow FM has just started broadcasting from the centre. By PIERS FULLER Demonstrating yet another way that the Carterton Events Centre has become a true hub of the community, Wairarapa's access radio sta- tion has started broadcasting from the new facility. Arrow FM 92.7 set up its mobile broadcasting station in the library last Thursday and sent several Carterton-based radio programmes out over the airwaves. Carterton District Council community development man- ager Lorraine Gittings says the new partnership is very exciting and shows how the two organisations can work together to benefit the wider community. She says having a radio sta- tion operating from a library may not be a traditional fit, butitisasignofhowtherole of the library has evolved. There is a lot more activity in the building, and a wide range of people are using it for dif- ferent purposes. Previously, Arrow FM had broadcast from Tarragon Cafe in High Street. Ms Gittings says the events centre has become a magnet for community activities since it opened three months ago, attracting a mixture of users. Bodymind Pilates has just started classes there, and yoga is about to begin. There is always a queue at the front door at 9.30am when the cen- tre opens. As soon as these doors open it's like sale day at Kilcaldies.'' Veronika Beall of Arrow FM says having the monthly pro- gramme based in the events centre seems to be the most appropriate location in Carterton. By coming into contact with more community organisations, it is also a chance to promote the station and attract more people interested in producing their own programmes. The monthly Carterton pro- gramme lineup includes Rich- ard Hall of Stonehenge Aotea- roa at 9am; Maree McMannaway with her life coaching programme at 10am; musician Stefan Brown with Jam Jar at 11am; Ms Beall with Spaetzle Radio at noon; Technology in the Community with Jill Greathead at 1pm; and La Petite Fitness Studio at 2pm.
