Hello and welcome

to Witney Talking News.

A registered charity based in Witney in West Oxfordshire, Witney Talking News (WTN) provides a free weekly talking news service to local people who are visually impaired or who otherwise have difficulty holding or reading newspapers.  Editions are posted free-of-charge courtesy of a FREE delivery service from the Royal Mail so listeners do not incur costs either for receiving the service or returning the pouch.

Please Note: We recommenced our USB stick service in 22nd April following a period of suspension due to the COVID-19 restrictions.  As with many organisations we are continually assessing the risk to both listeners and volunteers and may be required to re-assess our service in the event of  future changes to restrictions.  Should we have to suspend our service again, you will instead be able to listen by calling 01993 555 986. For more details please see our full COVID-19 Response.

Listeners receive a weekly USB stick loaded with around an hour of news recorded each Thursday evening from the Witney Gazette, the Faringdon Folly, the Chipping Norton News and a variety of other publications. This can be played back on the dedicated simple to use playback units that are provided free of charge. They can also be played back on some newer talking book machines or on your own computer.

Please use the menu bar at the top of the screen for more details about our service or to contact us, or the links on the right of the screen to listen to some previous editions in the archive.
