Edi­tor quest con­tin­ues

Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

MACCLESFIELD Talk­ing News­pa­per for the Blind has is­sued a fresh ap­peal for a new edi­tor.

The Talk­ing News­pa­per records an au­dio ver­sion of the Macclesfield Ex­press each week, which is sent free-of-charge to blind and vis­ually im­paired peo­ple.

In Fe­bru­ary, cur­rent edi­tor Lynn Hil­ton an­nounced she was step­ping down af­ter 14 years of ser­vice.

How­ever, two months on, no suit­able re­place­ment has been found.

Lynn said: “The ideal can­di­date will be keenly in­ter­ested in cur­rent af­fairs, have ex­cel­lent lit­er­acy skills and pos­sess good lo­cal knowl­edge.

“It would be per­fect for a re­cently re­tired per­son keen to con­trib­ute some­thing worth­while to the lo­cal com­mu­nity.”

Ev­ery Thurs­day an ed­i­to­rial team of 10 meet at the Talk­ing News­pa­per stu­dio on Queen Vic­to­ria Street. The edi­tor leads a group of 50 vol­un­teers who record and dis­trib­ute the au­dio Ex­press.

If you are in­ter­ested, con­tact Colin Turner at mac­ctn@vi­sion15.co.uk or phone 01625 435283.
