About Us



Classic Hits Forest Gold was launched in 2002 to cater for patients at St. Margaret's, Brentwood and Saffron Walden Community Hospitals. Since our launch, feedback from patients and staff has been tremendous with lots of requests to make our service available outside of the hospitals. Since 2010 Forest Gold has been available online and we have welcomed everyone who enjoys our mix of good time oldies.


Classic Hits Forest Gold is part of Radio Forest, a voluntary organisation and charity which provides radio services to hospitals in Essex.



We are always please to hear from people who would like to help us with our work. We rely on donations and fundraising as well as a dedicated team of volunteers. If you would like to find out more about what we do, please use the contact tab to get in touch.
