Local Talking News for the Blind and Visually Impaired
Every two weeks, volunteers at Sussex Coast Talking News produce recordings on CDs of local news for Littlehampton, Worthing and Shoreham. The CDs are sent out free to all Sussex Coast Talking News listeners.
As well as the news, the CDs carry a fortnightly magazine, covering a variety of topics. Most recently, these topics have included Remembrance and the Centenary of the WW1, Horses and Equestrian Life, and A Trip down Route 66.
You can listen to our recordings via the British Wireless for the Blind (BWBF) Web Player. Just click on the 'Links' below.
We offer a fortnightly News broadcast as well as a Magazine and both are available to listen to on this website.
For Archived News (limited) or Magazines select from the Archived Recordings tab at the top of any page.
If you would like us to send you a free CD every fortnight containing the News and the Magazine contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01903 776569
