A special facility is available to blind residents in 
    Datchet.

    The Slough & District Talking Newspaper for the 
    Blind provides a free service by providing a 90 
    minute audio tape by post to registered listeners 
    every Saturday morning.These tapes provide a 
    balanced report of selected extracts from the two 
    local newspapers the Express and the Observer. 

    The Association has been offering the service for 
    over 20 years. Some 60 volunteers, who give 
    freely of their time,  record the tapes on Friday 
    mornings. These tapes are then copied and 
    delivered to the Royal Mail by 10pm on Friday 
    evening. The Royal Mail delivers the tapes free of 
    charge.

   The Association's Life Vice President is a Datchet
    resident , Percy Whitford. A founder member, he 
    was Chairman of the Association for 10 years.
