The Wickford & District Talking Newspaper records and sends out local News recordings every week, totally free, with articles taken from our local Newspapers to people who are visually impaired. The news recorded covers Wickford, Billericay, South Woodham Ferrers, Basildon and surrounding areas.

We also send out a monthly magazine recording “Insight”, and a monthly information recording, “The Informant”.

Would YOU - or someone you know - like to receive an audio News recording? You don't have to be resident in the Wickford or Basildon area - several of our listeners are people who have moved out of the Essex area but still like to receive the local news.

More information on how to receive the Wickford & District Talking Newspaper in your choice of media, and on how to become involved as a supporter or volunteer, is available from the pages on this website.

The Wickford & District Talking Newspaper was proud to receive the 2010 Queen's Award for Voluntary Services.
