Example: Radio Service Announcement


The Communications Manager at the Council has asked you to write a community service announcement for local radio, telling listeners about the plans to upgrade the playgrounds at Yardley Park and Barnes Park. 60 words maximum. (Open Colleges, 2016)


“It’s time to play in Green Ponds! Council has announced a $350,000 government grant for the upgrades of Barnes Park and Yardley Park. New playground equipment will render our parks safer and more stimulating for children, whilst rejuvenating the community. Construction is scheduled for March. Community members are invited to follow progress online, follow the links from the council website.”
