The Bromley and District Talking Newspaper Association 
Freelands Grove

The Association is independent and supported entirely by voluntary contributions. It is a registered charity and all administration and production is undertaken by volunteers.

Our work relies on donations, without which we could not update our recording and copying equipment or have the office space to continue
with this important project.
All contributions and donations are gratefully received.


Volunteers are Always Needed!

More help is always needed! Joining TheBromley District Talking Newspaper Association as a volunteer is very rewarding, and an opportunity to make new friends. So if you know someone who could spare a few hours each week to help produce and send the news to people who really value our service it would be really appreciated.

Volunteers are involved in providing a special and essential service to the hundreds of sight impaired Bromley borough residents – young and old –
who rely on listening to the local news that they can no longer read
for themselves.

What is involved.


A team of Editors meets in the morning and assembles a script to be recorded that evening.  The script, containing articles of local news and information, is drawn up from various sources including the local newspapers.  In the evening a team of Readers meet with the Duty Editor and a Recording Engineer to record that week's edition of the Bromley District Talking News.


The Copying Team meets to duplicate the memory sticks on high speed copying equipment.  The memory sticks are then put into postal wallets and sorted into mail sacks according to post code, ready for collection by Royal Mail.


Royal Mail deliver the sacks back and another Copying team meets to empty the postal wallets and file them ready for re-use the following Friday.  At the same time, the memory sticks are erased and the Listeners' register marked up.
