Hi, I'm the site Administrator, otherwise known as Chas. I hope you like the site, feel free to comment on anything, the more you tell us what you like or don't, the better. 

Helen fell into the broadcasting world completely by accident. She had always been told that she had a recognisable voice in her 20 years as a fitness instructor and tutor. After recording a promotion for an event she was organising on the Red Kite Radio Voicebox she was approached by the team at Red Kite and now she helps out with the Local News and Weather and who knows what else will come in the future.

Music & Fitness has always been her passion as long as she can remember. In music she has an eclectic taste from rock to classical and feels lucky to have a son who now makes his own electronic music and enjoys finding new and unknown artists and bands which is great for her. Helen is not so much of a 'in the charts' girl or mainstream listener, she describes herself as off the rails as far as the music she listens to.

Helen has always been into sport and after studying fitness she began teaching classes, aerobics, step, strength and conditioning, PT and indoor cycling. She became renowned for her unusual individual music mixes as an instructor and as an International Presenter. She developed her skills to tutoring internationally and delivers courses for instructors and the military. She has her own business training instructors with her own indoor cycling program.

In her spare time she is a cyclist inside and outside. Helen also enjoys kayaking and walking her Cocker Spaniel Oliver, who also goes kayaking! Her favourite place is home in Oakley with her family and loves trips away and holidays in her second home the camper van.

It's been an interesting, amazing, sad and joyous two years but we're still here. It's happy second birthday to us today. Our first offiicial broadcast was on Sunday 18th June 2017. It took a lot of hard work, long hours of planning and preparation, lots of form filling, meetings and fund raising, but we made it.

We'd like to take this opportunity to thank all our Sponsors and Advertisers past and present, our supporters and of course our volunteers who work tirelessly to give their time and expertise to keep Red Kite Radio on the air, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Thank you one and all, happy birthday and here's to the next year.

Haddenham Fete 2019

June 11, 2019

WOW! What a day we had at Haddenham Fete. The rain held off thank goodness but we were nearly blown away by the winds. The one thing I didn't cater for, so we struggled to pin down the Gazebo, thankfully, rope was on hand and a few metal spikes allowed us to anchor it. As you can see in the picture below.

The team were there in force, Steve, Annie, James, Peter, Chas and Chris. We had a great day, meeting lots of Haddenham residents and visitors, capturing a few soundbites and running a small competition. The question was: "What is the name HADDENHAM commonly thought to mean?" and the answer is "Hadda's Homestead". The winner was Danny Prendergast who wins a Red Kite Radio, Radio.
