Welcome to Fenprobe

The Fenprobe Talking News service brings local news to blind and partially-sighted people across East Cambridgeshire, UK.


Fenprobe Talking News, the news service for the blind and partially sighted in East Cambridgeshire, brings the local news to around eighty listeners in the area.

Each week, a team of volunteers gets together to record the latest stories from the Ely Standard and the Ely Weekly News.  A Post Office concession ensures that the news can be sent and returned free of charge.

All registered listeners receive a free USB player.

We have over forty volunteers who regularly dedicate their time and the news recording is produced fifty-one weeks out of fifty-two, with a break at
                                                                                                Christmas.

We are a registered charity (CFB 279355R) and a member of the Talking Newspaper Association of the United Kingdom . The service benefits from the Post Office concession of free postage for blind people and other costs are met through grants and donations.

Please take a look round the site to find out more about Fenprobe and how you can use our service.

We provide our local news service in East Cambridgeshire and the neighbouring regions including Newmarket, Peterborough, Huntingdon, Soham, Stretham and, of course Ely, where we are based.
