Can you help with recording?

Wisbech Talking Newspaper is looking for people interested in modern technology to help with the recording of its two talking newspapers.

The group has enough volunteers to read the actual newspapers and magazine it produces each month, it needs some ‘digital wiz kids’ to help with the actual recording of them.

Currently, volunteers produce two audio newspapers and one magazine each month, which are delivered to over 60 local partially-sighted people.

Initial training will be given and thereafter commitment would be two or three hours a month. The recordings take place on the first Tuesday and the final Thursday of each month at Peckover House in Wisbech.

The group’s Secretary, Isobel Shippey said: “This is an opportunity for people to meet new friends, learn new skills and know that at the same time you are part of a team which provides a much appreciated service. We are a really friendly group, and have several social get-togethers throughout the year too, so it’s not all hard work and no play.”

Anyone interested in becoming a recording engineer for the W&DTN should contact technical manager, Andrew Neve on 01945 870023.
