Farewell to Waveney Partnership Television
Waveney Partnership Television has helped raise the profile of many organisations over the last three years including the public sector, health and voluntary organisations. Sadly the funding for the project finished on August 1st 2010, but the screens will remain in place. Waveney Partnership TV will however have no control over the content. The project was described recently as fulfilling a very useful public local service. Unfortunately the same three year package was not available through the hosting company “The Life Channel. A decision not to refund the project was therefore made. A selection of generic posters have been designed to stay on the screens until the new Life Channel content is uploaded, when they will be removed. WPTV films will still be shown on the screens as the copyright remains with the Life Channel.
Waveney Partnership Television is an initative supported by the Local Strategic Partnership. It is aimed at profile raising through the nine plasma screens situated across Waveney. The three year project has featured many local organisation films along with the strategic news.
“Waveney Partnership Television was a labour of love for voluntary organisations featuring on the screens. Thanks are given not only to all involved in making Waveney Partnership Television successful. They are given to Alan Osborne, East Partnership Co-coordinator, Suffolk Constabulary. His direction at the helm and commitment to the project made it truly work.
Nearly sixty local community, voluntary organisations have been showcased on Waveney Partnership Television throughout the three year project. Over a thousand information and event posters promoted the causes of local voluntary, community and strategic partnerships. A huge “Thank you” is given to the venues who hosted the plasma screens located at Asda, Morrison’s and Tesco supermarkets, Lowestoft College, Waveney Sports & Leisure, Oulton Village Medical Centre, Adventure Island Play Park, Palmers Department Store and the Andaman’s
The appointment of the Waveney partnership Coordinator and the filming opportunities raised the profile of the screens and their locations. Feedback and the increase in information posters uploaded and verified the awareness of the screens..
