Until November 2015, Helen had never been anywhere near a radio mic. Her neighbour, Dino Bishop, popped ’round one evening to borrow a cup of sugar, and mentioned he was looking for a co-host for his show, live from the war memorial, on the Fifth. It was the beginning of a beautiful partnership.

This year, Helen will once again be joining Dino on the big night, for live news, whizzes and bangs from the heart of the action.

Helen grew up in Sussex, and has lived in Lewes with her daughter for the last ten years. She’s a Social Care professional, and a keen pianist, baker, and fair-weather cyclist.
