Staff at a community radio station say they are "delighted" to have been crowned station of the year at an awards ceremony. 

Wycombe Sound, which is based in Bridge Street and is set to celebrate its first birthday soon, won a total of seven awards at the 2017 Community Radio Awards in Bristol on Saturday evening. 

The station was nominated in seven different categories and collected awards in each one, including gold in the station of the year category, silver in the best female and male presenters (Philippa Sawyer and Rob L'Esperance) technical innovation and speech and journalism categories. 

They also won bronze for best sports show and best community programme for the mid morning show. 

Philippa Sawyer, programme director, said: "I am absolutely delighted with the recognition we have received from the community radio sector across the UK.

"Congratulations to all those who received awards and nominations. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all our volunteers and everyone who has contributed to the station.

"We have producers, presenters and others who work behind the scenes producing content across a wide range of genres that is worthy of any commercial/professional station. Many of our volunteers have no previous broadcasting experience.’’

Chris Phillips, managing director, added: "To be recognised at this level before we reach our first birthday is a dream come true. Our birthday party will now be extra special."
