Strathearn Talking News is your local Talking Newspaper. We are volunteers who read and record onto USB (memory stick) the Strathearn Herald which is the local newspaper for Crieff and District. We also read and record the free monthly magazine The Crieff and Comrie Quair.
We are a Charity ( SCO 15628 ) and proud to say that Strathearn Talking News has been providing a service for 35 years for those in our community who have a visual impairment and who find reading difficult.
We provide a USB player which is simple to use thanks to the highly visible yellow on/off/volume dial, and the yellow forward/back buttons.
The service we provide is completely free. You would receive the weekly USB in a yellow wallet. Once you have listened to and enjoyed hearing the local news, all you are required to do is return the USB in the wallet.
There is no postage charge, as items for the blind and visually impaired are delivered free by Royal Mail. The address label is printed with your name and address on one side and the address of Crieff sorting office on the reverse.
If you, or a relative, neighbour or friend might be interested in receiving the weekly USB please get in touch. We’d be very pleased to hear from you.
