Our Board of Trustees

We are pleased that these dedicated people donate their time and expertise to ensure that our Access Radio station is fairly and competently governed.

Hello, I'm Jan McLaren. I’ve been involved in Access Radio since its inception in Wairarapa. I was the first coordinator in 1986 when the three hour programme was broadcast weekly from 2ZD, the local commercial station. As a member of the Communications team at Wairarapa DHB, I am still helping to promote community access to the airwaves through the DHB's monthly programme, Health Network. Jan McLaren
Hi - I'm Anne Donald, Deputy Principal of MPS, mother of 5 boys and a firm supporter of Arrow FM. I grew up in the UK but am now a kiwi, with British and NZ citizenship. My long involvement in organisations such as Parents Centre, Playcentre and the Women's Electoral Lobby helped me realise that people need to have a voice in their local community. I'm very pleased to be part of the Arrow FM Board, supporting community access to broadcasting. Anne Donald
Dave Sinton here. I joined the Board shortly after the station went full time, as we thought it would be good to have a broadcaster on the Board. I have been Board Chair since 2006 and am very pleased to see the station progress to where it is now. This has been possible through lots of hard work from the station staff and also the volunteer broadcasters. The Board is very grateful and proud that everyone’s efforts have made us the success we are. Dave Sinton
