Local news week of 18th Dec 2020

This week’s news begins with a Christmas and New Year message from EETN Chairman Judy Sarssam on behalf of the team. Our many local news stories include the story of Steve Rebus, a blind man from Surrey, who has embarked on an epic walk to raise awareness and money for the charity Blood pressure UK. We have a Covid-Hero story of Tiffin school teacher Jamie Frost who kept children around the world learning with his creation Dr Frost Maths and news about a donation from Rotary Club Epsom given to help in the fight against the pandemic. We have advice from Surrey County Council to call NHS 111 before visiting A&E and warnings about e-scooters and a near miss at Ashtead station. The next edition of the talking news will be published in the New Year and we’d like to take this opportunity to wish all our listeners, volunteers and website visitors Seasons Greetings.
