Who we are
This website is maintained by the volunteers of Heckington Living Community Radio. We are an affiliate of Heckington Living, a small voluntary group based in Heckington, Lincolnshire, UK.
Our website address is: https://radiohlr.com
Our postal address is: c/o Community Hub & Library, St Andrew’s Street, Heckington, NG34 9RE.
Having completed the relevant registration self assessment, Heckington Living considers itself and its affiliates to be exempt from the requirement to register, under the General Data Protection Regulations (‘GDPR’) with the Information Commissioner’s Office. This is because we are a small, not for profit community group, producing a village magazine, i.e. ‘Heckington Living’, and operating a community radio station, i.e. Heckington Living Community Radio, for the benefit of the people and community of Heckington.
By ‘not for profit’ we mean that the people who run Heckington Living and Heckington Living Community Radio do so on an entirely voluntary basis for which they receive no renumeration. 100% of the money raised by HLR is used for the purposes of operating HLR.
