Pershore Talking Newspaper was founded in 1981 by Alec and Gee Nelmes and in May 2020 will record its 1000th edition.
Our team produces a fortnightly recording of news selected from the local weekly newspapers and the monthly Pershore Times. It is distributed on a USB-memory stick to the blind, partially sighted or those who have difficulty reading who live in Pershore and the surrounding villages. This is a free service, run by volunteers.
The USB-memory stick can be played on a computer or other devices with a USB port. If these are not available to local listeners, Pershore Talking Newspaper do supply a free boombox to play them on.
