How to listen to the Enfield Talking Newspaper

There are several ways to access our free weekly broadcast.

Memory Stick

Listeners receive an MP3 memory stick through the post in a wallet with either a Velcro seal or a zip.. Once you have listened to the memory stick, flip over the address card on the front of the wallet and return the memory stick to us for re-recording in order to receive the next edition. Memory sticks can be played on computers, Concerto or Sonata devices or memory stick players. We can offer listeners who are in receipt of means tested benefits a free memory stick player.
