It’s December and we’ve had an early Christmas present: an interview with Peter White, presenter of Radio 4’s In Touch programme and President of Talking News Federation. Then we’re looking at local doings including the latest on the High Street, the visit of the Sight for Surrey sensory bus, the Library’s new gadget converting print to speech – Listener Hilary Longhurst has a go at using that – as well as the Headley Tearoom, and local pantomime in Dorking and Redhill (where Ann Widdecombe takes to the stage). We’re also interested in the wider world of visual impairment with a tactile version of the children’s favourite Connect 4 game for you to enjoy with the family, the RNIB In Your Pocket reading device and smartphone designed specifically for people with sight loss, and we hear about Dorking’s two Rotary clubs and their charity work.
And looking ahead – there will be a special Christmas and New Year issue coming your way in the week before Christmas, to tide you over the festive season.
