Customers are being thanked for supporting local businesses in Banchory.

A number of jingles have been created to thank customers who have supported the High Street and other businesses in Banchory.

The key message of shop safe, shop local is the focus of the jingles which will be aired on programmes throughout the River Dee Radio schedule.

You may have noticed on the shop windows in Banchory the logo of the campaign - a blue shopping bag with the Visit Banchory trademark.

The logo forms part of the Banchory Business Association's campaign to support shops and businesses in and around the north east town.

A number of videos, featuring local cafes, shops and businesses, have been produced and released on Banchory Business Association's Youtube channel. The videos promote the shop safe, shop local and eat safe, eat local message.

River Dee Radio will be releasing the first set of jingles this weekend and you can listen to them on your favourite shows.

Head to the River Dee Radio’s website at to listen live, find out about the schedule and catch up with your favourite programmes.

All musical tastes are catered for including Jazz, Pop, Rock, Classical, Ceilidh, Country and much, much more.

The next stage of the promotional campaign is to welcome everyone back to shop and eat in Banchory.

New jingles will then be created to help support the key messages that Banchory businesses appreciate your support and they hope that customers will return to shop and eat locally.

River Dee Radio is a volunteer community radio station based in Banchory although all the presenters have been creating programmes from home during Lockdown.

Paul Wilson, Chairperson of RDR said: "This is the first time that promotional jingles have been used on the station and we are keen to support towns and villages up and down Deeside by sharing information and publicising businesses and events."
