The objectives of Hereward Media are to advance the education and training of the inhabitants of Peterborough and its surrounding areas in broadcasting and audio, video and media skills techniques. We are a Registered Charity and a Company Limited by Guarantee, which means all profits are invested back into the project. This really is "the station you can really call your own".

Our Directors are also our Charity Trustees, and they bring to this project all the necessary skills to fulfill our charitable objectives - specifically to advance the education and training of the inhabitants of Peterborough and its surrounding areas in broadcasting and audio, video and media skills techniques. As an ancillary output from the courses we provide, which will be addressing the high-tech skills shortages via learning which can then be applied to a whole variety of careers, we will also bring a Local TV service to Peterborough and the Fenlands, through as many delivery routes as possible. What better way for the work of our beneficiaries to be admired than through it being in on the television screens of their own communities?

We are also in the process of forming a board of Business Trustees - these will be leaders and consultants with an interest in our region, who are prepared to assist us in being as good as we can possibly be in everything we undertake. Their specialisms will include training, computers and information technology, standards setting in broadcast engineering, administration, journalism, customer and community relations, advertising, arts and culture, human resources, law, social media, internet-based communications, design, statutory compliance, and business and leisure.
