WHAT were you doing in January 2012? What was happening in Llanelli? Llanelli’s Talking Newspaper has been bringing fortnightly news updates to people who are partially sighted or blind for many years.
During the last year we have been archiving every episode made from 2011 onwards when the programmes were placed on CD. Prior to that they were placed on cassette.
These episoded provide an invaluable local archive for the town as they carried news items from the town’s local papers and local government offices.
Much has changed since the early days but the envelopes go out every fortnight as they have always done.
The service is entirely reliant on volunteers. We hope you enjoy this episode, which may bring back some memories for you.
The full archives are due to be handed over to the town library, the Carmarthenshire Archives and the National Library of Wales
