Grapevine, The Great Yarmouth Talking Newspaper, a registered charity run entirely by volunteers to provide a free weekly service of local news to the blind and partially sighted people living in the Great Yarmouth district and the surrounding villages, as far north as Stalham.

This service was started in 1981, and since then volunteers have been recording news stories taken from the weekly edition of the Great Yarmouth Mercury newspaper, for distribution weekly, originally and until recently on cassettes, and now on usb memory sticks.  The number of listeners has grown over the years - we now send out by post about 200 memory sticks to listeners each week.
