Distinguished Gentlemen’s Ride (DGR) 2021

Distinguished Gentlemen’s Ride (DGR) 2021

 The DGR unites classic and vintage style motorcycle riders all over the world to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer research and men’s mental health.

 Looks like the date for this year’s DGR is going to be at a potentially warmer and drier time of the year this time (fingers crossed) for the UK.

The 2021 Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride is going ahead on its new date of Sunday 23rd May 2021.

A few of us from South Luffenham are planning to get together and join the ride in Cambridge; please use the links below to register and let us know if you’d like to join us.

New Radio station for Rutland and Stamford

Rutland and Stamford Sound is a new, independent, not-for-profit community radio station led by well-known local presenter Rob Persani. We launched on 8th March this year. The attached is a poster for you to use and share as you wish to let your local residents know more about the radio station.

What do we do?

Rutland and Stamford Sound entertains and informs local people, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We have local content, presenters, stories and involvement in every aspect of the radio station. We support the health and wellbeing of our listeners by helping to combat loneliness and isolation. How do we know this? Local people told us so, in engagement activities on the build-up to the station launch. Our name was chosen by local people and our logo was designed in Rutland. Local people listen to our radio station and engage with our brand.

Who is behind the radio station?

Originating from a project initiated by Rutland County Council, the station is now an independent Community Interest Company (Rutland and Stamford Sound CIC Registration No. 13100133). The Board and Management team are local people with business, broadcasting, finance and community experience. We are all volunteers, publicly accountable for our operations, transparent in how we use our funds and committed to regular engagement with the local community.  Currently broadcasting on-line, we operate to OFCOM standards of best practice.

Want to know more?

If you have any questions about the radio station, advertising and news, please get in touch. We’re looking forward to hearing from you and working together, soon
