After being out of action for a period of over two years due to the pandemic, Enfield’s talking Newspaper is back! To some listeners we offer companionship, to others we are simply a source of useful information. To all we provide a valuable service, which is free to access.
The Enfield Talking Newspaper was the first talking newspaper in the UK, established in 1961. More than sixty years on, our purpose remains the same - to create an audio recording of news articles and to deliver this, as quickly as we can, to blind and partially sighted residents in the borough.
The service is entirely free and the charity is run and managed entirely by volunteers.
For many years we have recorded every Thursday evening at the Civic Centre, Enfield, but due to the Covid-19 pandemic and restricted access to the Civic Centre, our last recording was on 13 March 2020. Little did we know that we would not be able to return for some time.
Unfortunately, many Talking Newspapers have had to close recently, with Waltham Forest TN being the latest. However, we are pleased to announce that the Enfield Talking Newspaper will be returning in September 2022.
We rely on volunteers to run and manage our organisation and donations from individuals and organisations to remain a free-to-access service for our listeners. We are always keen to hear from new volunteers, sponsors and listeners. We are also keen to hear from local clubs and societies with news that they would like to share.
