Following Government advice and in the knowledge that many people will be concerned about social distancing or isolating themselves, the decision has been made to suspend for the foreseeable future. The Talking Newspaper is operated by volunteers. Most of our volunteers fall into the “at risk” category of over 70s.

Our last issue of the talking newspaper was on 19th March 2020

Our website and Facebook page will be updated as things change. You can find us on
