Major Donation from Toyota GB

On Thursday 7th February representatives of Toyota GB came to our studio to present a cheque for £1,550 to the Epsom and Ewell Talking Newspaper. The grant was made from the Toyota Fund for a Better Tomorrow and will be used to buy new equipment to replace our present computers which are now very old.

News Editor Wanted!

We are currently looking for a News Editor to help us produce our weekly talking newspaper. You will research and collate local news from various sources, such as the Epsom Comet. You will then delegate the news to our three other readers in the recording team. No previous experience is required but a clear, confident speaking voice for presenting and closing the recorded news section is a must.

The position is voluntary therefore, the times are flexible. However, the general requirement is once or twice a month, on Thursdays from 10-11am.

Join our friendly team, who will be on hand to give you help and support.

All ages are welcome so if you want to gain work experience or be part our team and do something useful with your spare time we’d love to hear from you.
