Become a BTN listener
We find out about people who would like to receive our service from various sources - or because a friend or neighbour lets us know.
All you have to do is contact us with the details of the person who would like to receive a weekly copy. We will do the rest.
It’s easy. You can do this by either clicking: contact us or telephoning Richard on 01278-684390.
We will then contact you as soon as possible to arrange the delivery of your copy by post and don’t worry if you don’t have a boom box or computer to play it will, we will provide you with one for free!
When you have finished listening to the news etc all we ask is that you return it to us promptly in its wallet when you have finished with it.
You can receive the Bridgwater Talking Newspaper every week if you live in the Bridgwater area (or have a connection with it and live away) and are unable to read a conventional newspaper.
What will it cost me? Not a penny. There is no charge. The Royal Mail delivers all material for sight-impaired people without charge so it doesn't even cost you anything to send the tape back to us.
I am not totally blind. Can I still receive a weekly copy? Yes, of course. We are here to help any sight-impaired person who cannot read the newspapers for themselves and have no-one who can do it for them. We just need to know that you are registered as blind - which you can be even if you have some residual sight.
What if I forget to return my mailing wallet one week?
Most people return their wallets each week. Please send it back as soon as you can but if you miss aweek we will still send you a copy the following week.
The service is completely free for listeners who are blind or visually impaired and only the price of a stamp to those who cannot read a newspaper because of some other disability.The BTN is usually sent out each Thursday by post, and most listeners receive theirs on a Friday or Saturday.
