It is with regret that Worcester News and Equipment Service for the Blind is now forced to suspend the service for the weekly newspaper, talking books and magazine in line with current Government advice regarding the Coronavirus Pandemic.

We realise many of you will be very disappointed, but we need to comply with current regulations.

If you live alone please do not be tempted to go out. Listen to BBC H&W as they are compiling lists of contacts in each area who may be able to help. Try and make contact with a relative, friend or neighbour who could get some shopping for you as long as they are not in a risk group. Many medical appointments are being cancelled but GP’s may offer a telephone consultation.

It is with great sadness that after 42 years we are forced to make this decision, but we all need to keep safe and keep well. We will be back as soon as we get the all clear.
