Lottery Cash Gets Dorking Talking

The Dorking and District Talking Newspaper has put their £700 UK National Lottery Big Lottery Fund grant to good use and purchased the recorders, microphones, and other equipment necessary for the production of a new monthly magazine for the partially sighted.

Dorking Talking allows listeners to enjoy content that the talking newspaper does not cover, including audio descriptions of local landmarks, funny stories, information about products and services the partially blind may enjoy, and interviews with local residents and service providers.

Magazine editor Jessica Thurtell said: "It's a wonderful boost which lets us bring an extra hour or so of entertainment from familiar, friendly voices to our listeners."
