The Restart

The society’s office is almost back to normal following the Covid-19 outbreak and we are looking forward to continuing our work in supporting local blind and visually impaired people.

There will be staff available to take telephone calls or respond to email. We will continue to support service users over the telephone and out of office hours by mobile telephone.

We continue to supply equipment and deliver locally as before. We will observe social distancing for the protection of our clients and colleagues.

The Talking Newspaper and Magazine are currently being produced by our experienced volunteers at home using their own equipment. We are looking for funding to re-equip our recording devices to raise the quality of the recordings in the future. The number of subscribers has very quickly got back to the numbers we had prior to the outbreak.

For the present, the society’s office remains closed to callers and signed for deliveries. Please telephone 01254 698683 for information about products or services or email

Thank you.
