About Us

Officially called Crewe and Nantwich District Talking Newspaper we are Registered Charity Number 507826, registered in England on the 10th August 1978

Our aim:

To relieve the blind, or the partially blind, or those labouring under some temporary or permanent incapacity or disability which makes reading a strain, by the provision of recordings, or tactile reading matter.

The Talking Newspaper is entirely produced by unpaid volunteers and provided free of charge to our listeners.

The Talking Newspaper is based at the IRIS Vision Resource Centre 14 Chapel Street, Crewe, CW2 7DQ. Note that we do not have regular hours so in the first instance contact the secretary or visit IRIS during their opening hours to see the exciting things they are doing.

Thanks to:

Crewe and Nantwich Chronicles for providing the newspapers and giving us permission to read them.

Crewe and Nantwich Chronicles are published by Trinity Mirror North West.

Royal Mail for providing free delivery and return of the recordings under their Articles for the Blind scheme.
