The Crewe and Nantwich Talking Newspaper Story
1977: The Beginning
Crewe and Nantwich Talking Newspaper for the Visually Impaired was set up following an initiative from Crewe Rotary Club in 1977. They got together a number of local people who became the nucleus for the organisation as it operates today.
Our work involves bringing the local news to about 100 visually impaired people every week.
2002: 25 Years Old
To mark the first 25 years of CNTN, we produced a booklet in which some of the founder members recall the early days and the first quarter century. You can read the booklet here.
2012: Talking Newspaper Goes Digital
Like many other Talking Newspapers, Crewe and Nantwich Talking Newspaper successfully transferred to a fully digital operation in October 2012, using USB memory sticks instead of cassette tapes.
2017: 40 Years Old, and still going
