More help needed for Talking Newspaper

Wymondham and Attleborough Talking Newspaper is asking for more help as the organisation celebrates its eleventh anniversary.

Wymondham and Attleborough Talking Newspaper is asking for more help as the organisation celebrates its eleventh anniversary.

It was on April 10 1998 that the first edition of the audio news and information service was sent out. Volunteers produce and despatch a weekly digest of news and features for almost 70 blind or partially sighted listeners, in addition to compiling a monthly audio magazine.

Now the group is looking for additional help and they would like to hear from anyone who is interested in becoming a news editor, postal wallet administrator or a minute secretary. Full training will be provided.

The organisation is also keen to increase the number of listeners who receive the free service, which will shortly be sent out on a memory stick, instead of on cassette. Every listener is being provided with a free machine on which to play the digital device.

Chairman, and listener, Pat Crawford said: 'The volunteers have produced hundreds of hours of recordings over the years. We are very grateful for all the work they put in and for the support provided by the local community.'
