ABOUT US


Shire Radio (aka Shire Media) is a registered charity and a volunteer-driven not-for-profit organisation, based in North Lanarkshire.


Our purpose is to provide a community hub, an online media hub, a local radio service, local podcasts and locally created videos that are all about North Lanarkshire, made by the people of North Lanarkshire, all of which are intended to inform, educate and celebrate our heritage, culture, talent, diversity and natural beauty throughout our area.


Proudly serving “Scotland’s Industrial Heartland,” our media hub provides everyone who lives in North Lanarkshire with the most information about our communities and our county.


We have created comprehensive lists (with links to websites and social media pages) for local schools, public transport, places of worship, community groups, local amenities, local facilities and local services that are available within or near every town, village, hamlet and inner-town estate in North Lanarkshire. To view them, click or hover your mouse over your nearest town, select your community and click on the logos for each category.


SUPPORTING LOCAL GROUPS.


Shire Media intends to promote almost every known community and charity organisation based within or serving North Lanarkshire.

As well as listing community groups and organisations on the Local Groups page for each town, village and hamlet, we have created comprehensive lists of other groups that serve the whole county. To view them, click HERE.


SUPPORTING LOCAL BUSINESS


Shire Media supports local businesses by providing a cost-effective and truly local platform, where they can promote themselves more effectively instead of using regional or national media.

We have created a business directory, featuring great local companies that are based in our county, which offer products and services that we can be proud of. To view them, click HERE


SUPPORTING LOCAL PEOPLE


Shire Media supports EVERYONE in North Lanarkshire, regardless of age, disability, faith, gender or race. We are proud to have a diverse population living and working in our county, making this area such a great place to live.

Through our many platforms, we will celebrate our cultural heritage and present-day diversity through music, art, videos, podcasts, information, news, sport, discussions and entertainment, as we endeavour to bring everyone in our county together.


SUPPORTING LOCAL TALENT


Shire Media is proud of North Lanarkshire’s most talented people. Through our many platforms, we will celebrate them through music, art, videos, podcasts, information, news, discussions and entertainment.

We also intend to promote our county’s new and aspiring artists, writers, actors, musicians, comedians, entertainers, sporting champions and more.


CELEBRATING OUR HISTORY AND HERITAGE


Our heritage has made North Lanarkshire the epicentre of Scotland’s commerce and manufacturing successes. Our county played a major role in the Industrial Revolution and we continue to have some of Scotland’s (and the UK’s) largest industrial sites.

Throughout this website, we shall be providing pages of pictures and information about the industries that are the reason why our towns and villages exist and why we are proud of our history.


CELEBRATING OUR ARCHITECTURE, MONUMENTS AND NATURAL BEAUTY


Our county’s towns, villages and hamlets have some of Scotland’s finest buildings and monuments, as well as areas of outstanding natural beauty.

Throughout this website, we shall be providing pages of pictures and information about them, as well as listing the many nature walks, forests, lochs, reservoirs, canals, rivers, streams and hills that can be found throughout the area.
