ELLESMERE Port and Neston Talking Newspaper was honoured by a visit from borough mayor Keith Butcher during their production meeting at Little Sutton Library.
Vice chairman Phil Jeffrey showed Cllr Butcher and his wife Joan how the weekly audio tapes are produced and how they are slowly being replaced by an MP3 computer system, which involves recording on memory sticks.
The project involves not only the expense of replacing the existing equipment with new machines, but also re-training for helpers and listeners.
At the moment a cassette tape is produced with news from the Pioneer recorded on one side and magazine items on the other.
About 130 copies are sent out to blind and partially sighted listeners every week at no cost.
Anyone who would like a weekly tape or to offer help in producing them call 339 2143.
