Welcome to Cranleigh Community Radio. Bringing a voice to Cranleigh and surrounding villages.

The project started as Cranleigh went into lockdown, along with the rest of the UK. For the duration of the lockdown, we published weekly episodes every Friday morning.

As things are gradually returning to normal, new episodes of Cranleigh Community Radio are published every other Friday morning.

Each episode of Cranleigh Community Radio features local voices, news and information, and entertainment to get us all through these challenging times.

You can listen to new episodes here on Destination Cranleigh or as a podcast episode download via your favourite podcast player or smart speaker.

Cranleigh Community Radio – Pulling Together While Staying Apart

How to contribute to Cranleigh Community Radio

We want to hear from you!

Cranleigh Community Radio is the place for local voices, news, information and entertainment.

There are three ways to contribute some audio for a future episode.

1 – Record something on your phone. Most smartphones have a pre-installed voice recorder app (called Voice Memo on the iPhone). Speak into your phone with this app recording, and then email to the file to hello@destinationcranleigh.net.

2 – Leave us a voice message using the recorder on the page below. You can record a voice message of up to 5 minutes in length and submit it via the Destination Cranleigh website.

3 – If you want to record a conversation with others, record your call in Zoom (it’s free for group conversations up to 40 minutes!) and then email us with the audio file.

We’re looking for variety, so please send through 2-5 minutes worth of your audio recording. As long as a) you’re local, or b) the topic is local, we’re interested in featuring it in a future episode!

If in doubt, email hello@destinationcranleigh.net to share your feature idea. We look forward to hearing from you!
