Glossop Talking Newspaper

Being able to see the printed word is something a lot of us take for granted. Blind and partially sighted people don’t have this opportunity – but we can help them in other ways.

‘Newsdisk’ is a weekly 45-minute programme of roundup of news, events and interviews featuring items of local interest which covers Glossop, Padfield, Hadfield, Tintwistle, Gamesley, Chisworth and Charlesworth.

It is put together and recorded onto CD by a team of dedicated volunteers.  The service is entirely FREE and is distributed every Thursday to over 80 blind or partially sighted listeners.

For more information please contact The Bureau team on 01457 865722


The Glossop Newsdisk is independent community group who we work in close partnership with.
