Year in Review 2017 18Since July 2017 to June 2018, there have been some big projects organised by 2RPH. One of the most significant has been a station-wide Program Review, assessing existing programs and opening the door for proposals for new programs. Much of the findings have been implemented from the review but there is still more work to do here. Together with the Program Review, community engagement and partnerships have been a big focus as has organising events to celebrate the amazing contributions of 2RPH's volunteers and Members, who continue to be the lifeblood of the radio reading service.
