We’re back in operation!

We are very pleased to say that the Epsom and Ewell Talking Newspaper was produced and distributed on 21st May – the first issue since the Covid-19 restrictions were imposed. You can listen to the News section in the next post, below.

We are still not able to access our studio (this is for the protection of our volunteers and especially our neighbours) so this edition was recorded by volunteers at home using handheld recorders, tablets and computers. The various parts were transmitted over the internet to another volunteer who assembled them and produced the memory sticks. They were then packed into envelopes and taken to the Post Office.

As a result of this process, the quality of the recording is not up to our usual standard but we hope that it is better than nothing! We will continue to work over the weeks to get the standard as high as we can given the circumstances.

Unfortunately, we are not at present able to visit new listeners in their homes to provide them with machines on which to play our memory sticks. However, do let us know if you wish to join our mailing list and we will keep your details on file. If you already have the means to play a usb memory stick, please click on the “Subscribe” link below, so we can add you to the distribution list immediately.

Our next edition is scheduled for 11th June.
