For many years I volunteered as a reader and editor for Witney Talking News and later became Magazine Editor for them where I enjoyed working with fellow volunteers producing Magazines. I still send items to them from time to time. I now live in Devon, so you will hear other people reading my items. I hope you enjoy listening to them.
