About Us

Sandbach & District Talking Newspaper is a Registered Charity, set up in 1986 with the objective of assisting those in our local community who are visually impaired, or those suffering some temporary or permanent incapacity or disability which makes reading a strain, by the provision of recorded or tactile reading matter.

Each fortnight we produce “NEWSWEEK”, our local Talking Newspaper, in which we record items of local news with views, information and readers’ letters from the local newspapers onto digital memory sticks for our listeners.

The stories are read from the local newspapers covering the areas:

  • Sandbach
  • Middlewich
  • Alsager
  • Holmes Chapel
  • Goostrey

In addition we produce special recordings. These include monthly extracts from the prestigious Cheshire Life magazine and extracts from the quarterly This England and Evergreen magazines as well.

To meet this task, our volunteers include:

  • Editors
  • Readers & Relief Readers
  • Recording Technicians & Relief Technicians
  • Copiers
  • Administrators
  • Trustees & Committee members

All of these give their time at no cost. They are a dedicated team whose only objective is to put a little light into the world of their listeners. If you would like to join the team, please go to the How You Can Help Us page.
