Suffolk User Forum live on BBC Radio Suffolk – Full show and Individual Segments

As many of you may know, on Tuesday 12th February Suffolk User Forum took part in the BBC Radio Suffolk Tuesday Takeover to share both our work and experiences mixed with a wide array of guests to the 12,000 strong listeners that night. The show was a great success and we hope you were able to tune in that night to join us.
