Through what was then a unique partnership with Talking Newspapers, the Berwickshire News was brought to blind and partially sighted people in 2004.

Wendy Moss, a local organiser from Duns, said at the time: “We send out 200 tapes each week and about 50 items are recorded every week as well. People have said they regard the Talking Newspaper as a friend.

“It is a very important service, even more so in a rural area like the Borders where people are scattered over a wide area, often in isolated locations.”
