Hi there, I’m Steve Gallant and I present Good afternoon on Fridays, This Friday my guest will be Stephen Metcalfe MP for Basildon South and East Thurrock I will also be joined by Yvonne Williams from Gateway after 2pm you can count on some lively discussion on local matters that affect the community. Before that starting after the news at 1pm I will be talking about a local school’s decision to employ an elocution trainer, Cherry Tree Primary school in Church Lane Basildon claims that positive voice training and correct pronunciation really helps children not only to be understood but aids their spelling too. I will be speaking to Francesca Gordon- Smith of ‘Positive Voice’ Francesca will explain how elocution training works and builds confidence.
I’m always on the lookout for interesting guests and have been very fortunate during the time I have been with Gateway, From a former BA Purser who has looked after the Queen and Royal family on more that one occasion, to an American journalist and writer who offered his opinion together with me on the Ford Kuga following a drive of 1500 km. This together with travel stories, featuring the historic town of Maldon in Essex and it’s George Washington connection.
I offer an open invitation to anyone who has an interesting story to tell, be it a hobby, a job or simply things that give them pleasure, I would love to hear from you, remember Gateway is a community radio station and it’s primary aim is to serve the community, simply put, The voice of your community and your community voice. Drop me a line at [email protected] or call 01268833978 when I’m on air or leave a message for me at reception. I look forward to hearing from you.
