Wealden Talking News

A service for the blind and visually impaired in Sussex

Wealden Talking News is a registered charity producing weekly memory sticks of news and features taken from the local papers together with a monthly magazine service – free of charge for the visually impaired.

It produces 5 editions of news each week covering a wide area of East Sussex–

  • Heathfield & District

  • Hailsham & Polegate
  • Seaford & Newhaven
  • Brighton & District

and this is followed by

  • News from further afield in Sussex
  • Features of general interest

It also produces 4 monthly magazines available to anyone in East or West Sussex

OUR RECORDINGS are available free to anyone who is unable to read a newspaper due to sight problems - there is no formal qualification required. There are currently around 250 listeners and anyone that is sight impaired is invited to join the WTN mailing list via the New Listener Enquiry form or by phoning 01435 862 304 (ansaphone only).

We would like to thank our generous sponsors
