PROVIDING A SERVICE TO THE BLIND AND VISUALLY IMPAIRED IN AND AROUND THE BOROUGH OF WOKING.
Run entirely by volunteers operating from Moorcroft Centre for the Community in Woking, the Woking Talking Newspaper issues free weekly recordings on a USB thumb-drive, providing its listeners with local news and information.
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.
