We like to believe that the Rugby Talking Newspaper has a significant impact on our listeners. This is some of the feedback we have received:
" Not knowing what was going on in the town was my greatest regret when I lost my sight. Thanks to the local Talking Newspaper this has now been rectified and I can now keep up to date with the local ‘goings on’ Many thanks to the volunteers who help to make my life much more pleasurable."
" Before my eye sight began to fail there was nothing more I liked to do than have a good read of the Rugby Advertiser to take in all the local news and sport. When my eyesight deteriorated to such an extent that I was unable to read I was introduced to the Talking Newspaper and what a blessing it has been. Instead of my wife reading to me I can now sit back in my favourite chair, put on my ear phones and hear all about whatever is going on locally while my wife can watch her favourite soaps. I understand that this is the 35th anniversary of the Talking Newspaper and I would like say a sincere thank you to the team for the wonderful work they have done over the years and continue to do so."
" Rugby Talking Newspaper, the voice of News, Sport and What’s on for the visually impaired of Rugby and the surrounding area. A weekly service that I greatly appreciate."
" As my sight got worse and my ability to read the local and national papers got more and more difficult a conversation with Bob, the secretary of the Rugby Talking Newspaper has changed my life. Although there are some items I do not enjoy such as the sport, details of the late chemists and family announcements every week the rest is so enjoyable. "
