How Can We Help You?

If you are blind or visually impaired, we can help you stay in touch with local news and information from the Waveney area via our weekly talking newspaper and quarterly audio magazine.

— In normal circumstances, you receive every week a USB stick with our 90-minute recording of local news and information. The USB stick is packed in a re-sealable pouch and sent to you by post. Once you have listened to the recording, you simply return the pouch and USB stick so they can be re-used next time. If you don’t have a suitable player, we can provide you with one free of charge.

Every quarter, you receive a second USB containing our audio magazine, Valley Sounds.

The entire service, including equipment, is free to our listeners. —

However, while we’re all locked down because of Covid-19, we can’t record in our studio or send out our recordings on USB sticks. We’re now recording from home and making our latest recordings available online.

You can listen to our latest weekly recording from the Beccles and Bungay Journal here: Beccles & Bungay Journal . Alternatively, you can also listen to it at the BWBF website here . It’s also available by phone on 0330 22 33 452.

The latest Let’s Talk recording is here: Let’s Talk

and our Valley Sounds magazine here: Valley Sounds

If you, or anyone you know, would like to become one of our listeners, please get in touch with Helen on 01508 518723 or by email on secretary@3rtn.org.uk
