MORE accolades were heaped on the work of Fenprobe - the Talking News Service For The Blind and Visually Impaired in East Cambridgeshire - this week.
The group held its Annual General Meeting at Bell Holt on April 23 and its work drew praise from several local dignitaries. Fenprobe has been distributing sound recordings of local news to the homes of blind and partially-sighted people for the past 31 years.
Following the chairman Bill Pickess's review of the last year, president Richard Hobbs paid tribute to the unfailing dedication of the six 'reading teams' and to the unstinting work of the committee, in particular to that of secretary Janet Smith.
Guest speaker Tony Vale, a trustee of the Talking News Federation, also commended the work of Fenprobe. Ely mayor Sheila Friend Smith and her husband, Jeremy, were also in attendance at the meeting.
