Talking Newspaper for the Blind

The Wymondham and Attleborough Talking Newspaper for the Blind is looking for more users of its service in the Hethersett area. 

Two volunteers from the Talking Newspaper – Annette Trappes-Lomax and Marie Stevenson (pictured above - were at Hethersett Library to explain the service which provides local audio news, features and information for blind and partially sighted people in Wymondham, Attleborough and the surrounding area and villages. The service is also available to those for whom reading a newspaper is difficult because of a disability or health condition. 

The Wymondham and Attleborough Talking Newspaper is one of 12 independently run groups in Norfolk and one of more than 500 across the UK. Fifty volunteers produce the weekly service which is free and based on news and features from the Wymondham and Attleborough Mercury, the Eastern Daily Press and the Norwich Evening News. The service uses modern USB flashdrives which are sent out free of charge to recipients. Suitable players can also be made available free. 

More details on the service along with editions of the Talking Newspaper are also available on the web site 

“We would be very happy to hear from anybody who would like to receive our talking newspapers or from relatives of people who would enjoy listening to news and features and who are either blind or visually impaired,” Annette and Marie said. 

The Wymondham and Attleborough Talking Newspaper can be contacted via their web site or by contacting Tony and Georgette Vale on 01953 605434.
