We are a group of volunteers who prepare and read the newspaper on the day of publication. The recording is placed in a yellow zipped pouch and is in the post that evening for delivery the following day.

The charity has a committee of Chairman, Secretary, Treasurer and two independent trustees together with two support members and two listener representatives.

We have teams who cover various aspects of the process.

They consist of, distributors, technicians and readers.

Distributors

Collect the returned pouches from the Royal Mail sorting office. Remove the returned memory sticks and prepare the pouches for the new recording. The takes approximately one hour.

Recording Technician

Is in charge of recording and duplication on to the memory sticks. They then reload the pouches and return them to the sorting office for delivery. This takes place at our recording studio in the Guildhall between 1.30 and 4 pm.

Readers

We have two readers who are provided with odd or even pages of the Advertizer newspaper. They then select items to read that are relevant to the areas in which our listeners live. They attend between 1.45 and 3.00 pm.
