A BLIND Wisbech woman has praised the town’s talking newspaper and is urging other people with sight problems to take advantage of the service.

Olive Allen has told Mary Conway, one of the Talking Newspaper’s Magazine recording contributors just how much she enjoys hearing the monthly CDs.

Mrs Allen used to love reading, but since her eyesight failed she has been unable to read.

The Talking Newspaper helps her keep up to date with local events and also gives her something to look forward to twice a month.

The Newspaper produces two CDs a month containing news and items of interest plus a monthly magazine which covers a wide range of topics including items from other publications, fiction and poetry.

And Olive were thoroughly recommend anyone else with sight problems to register to receive the newspaper and magazine too.

Anyone interested in receiving any or all of the monthly CDs (or tapes) recorded by the Wisbech Talking Newspaper for the Blind and Partially Sighted, should contact Barbara Terry on 01945-773805.

The Talking Newspaper’s Annual General Meeting will be held on Friday October 21 in Peckover House’s Reed Barn at 7.30pm.
