Our Services


We supply a weekly audio News recording of local news and articles, mostly taken from The Wickford & Billericay Gazette, The Echo, The Yellow Advertiser, The Basildon Recorder and Total Essex.

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

The News, Insight and The Informant tapes are all provided free to our listeners.You don't have to be resident in the Wickford or Basildon area to receive our tapes - several of our listeners are people who have moved out of the Essex area but like to receive the local news.

If you -  or someone you know  -  would like to receive our recordings, please contact The Secretary of the Wickford & District Talking Newspaper at the address on the Contact Us page or via email wickfordtalkingnewspaper@gmail.com



We can make available any of our recordings on other media in addition to cassette tapes, for example on CD, or as mp3 on a Memory Stick, should listeners or organisations request this service. The latest recordings are also available from this website.  

Special Projects - other occasional recordings, are made on behalf of various organisations on a commercial basis, enabling them to reach the visually impaired community. If you have a requirement for the supply of audio material, in any format, please contact us for a quote and to discuss further.
