PROVIDING A SERVICE TO THE VISUALLY IMPAIRED, IN AND AROUND THE BOROUGH OF WOKING.
The Covid pandemic inspired The Woking Talking Newspaper to innovate its production methods for the weekly recordings.
The readers now work from home and the recording is managed entirely using the internet, and then issued as normal on USB Memory Sticks. Maximum care is taken to ensure that the memory sticks and wallets sent to our listeners are sanitised prior to posting.
We provide an audio version of the Woking News and Mail which contains news and information for Woking, Chobham, Byfleet and the surrounding villages.
Originally started by Roland Hill and reportedly as a one-man operation in his garden shed. It was said to have started in 1966 but we have no hard evidence to confirm that, only from the memory of one of our members.
In 1988, the Woking Talking Newspaper became a Registered Charity and was reformed as the Woking Talking Newspaper (1988) Association.
