Sad farewell from Whitby’s Talking Newspaper

editorial image

I am Pam Sleightholme and am secretary of the Whitby and District Talking Newspaper.

Sadly we have had to discontinue the service due to lack of volunteers to produce the tapes and dwindling numbers of listeners.

We have sent out the news on tapes every month for almost 40 years, its founder members being John Tindale and Lionel Horne, former owner of the Gazette.

On behalf of the chairman and committee I want to thank you all and wish you all the best.
