Talking Newpaper for Blind and Visually Impaired Persons 

Every two weeks, volunteers at Sussex Coast Talking News produce recordings on CDs of local news for Littlehampton, Worthing and Shoreham. The CDs are sent out free to all Sussex Coast Talking News listeners.

As well as the news, the CDs carry a fortnightly magazine, covering a variety of topics. Most recently, these topics have included Remembrance and the Centenary of the WW1, Horses and Equestrian Life, and A Trip down Route 66. There is also a piece from Sight Support Worthing.
