We are currently unable to send out our recordings via USBs in the post. However, recordings can be accessed online via a variety of platforms:
* our website https://www.3rtn.org.uk/listen-online/
* on My Talking Newspaper https://listen.talking-news.info/three-rivers/
For those with smartphone/tablets, you can listen via the free British Wireless for the Blind "Talking News" app.
On Alexa, by enabling the skill ‘My Talking Newspaper’ and saying ‘Alexa, open my talking newspaper’ and then ‘Alexa, play Three Rivers Talking Newspaper’.
For those without internet access, the weekly recordings can be listened to by phone (standard call rates apply, including whatever free calls you’re entitled to) on 0330 22 33 452
We will return to sending out USBs via the post as soon as it is safe to do so.
Volunteers read news principally from the Beccles and Bungay Journal weekly paper. It is distributed to those in the local community who are visually impaired and/or with a disability that prevents them from holding or reading a newspaper. The news is recorded digitally and we provide the necessary equipment to listeners. The service is entirely free.
The area we distribute to includes Beccles, Bungay, Halesworth, Harleston, Loddon, Diss, Southwold, and all surrounding areas and villages. We can also post to other parts of the UK (tusing free mail service offered by the Royal Mail). In addition, we record a quarterly magazine.
