FOUR members of Radio Craigavon have received 30-year long service certificates from the Hospital Broadcasting Association.
Melville Cully, Malachy Heaney, Sheila Livingston and Jim Kerr have collectively chocked up 120 years service in hospital broadcasting.
They joined the organisation back in 1981 following a recruitment drive led by the then chairman Eric Ewart. Eric, like so many members over the years, eventually moved on to other things, but the four stayed on and 30 years later are still doing their bit for the station.
The certificates are for services to hospital radio rather than to a specific station although in this case all four spent their time at Craigavon. The certificates were presented by Davey Downes, the NI Hospital Broadcasting Association representative who is also chairman of Mater Hospital Radio in Belfast.
Also present was Jenette Robinson, the HBA regional secretary. The presentation took place at a special dinner held in Portadown Rugby Club.
