Why not become a volunteer?

There are lots of different roles – here are some examples of things you could do:

You will select news stories from local newspapers for the recording.  These should be a true representation of the week’s local news coverage.

Once the Editor has selected the stories the readers role is now to quite simply read the article.  This may sound easy but variety is the spice of life, and different voices and accents make things interesting for the listeners. The quality of reading is one of our highest priorities – you will enjoy bringing the article to life.

This role is responsible for the quality of the audio recoding, editing out mistakes, ensuring no background noise, getting the sound levels correct.  You’ll record each edition onto a master copy for duplication for the listeners.

After the master recording has been completed, using state of the art digital copying equipment you’ll copy, check the process has been completed and put the finished product into the postal wallets ready for posting.
