bringing Local News to the Blind and Visually Impaired


Patrons and Volunteers

Welcome to the Havant Borough Talking Newspaper website. Known as HBTN we were set up in 1993 as a registered charity whose aim and purpose is to bring the local news to blind and visually impaired adults in the Borough of Havant. You can listen to our current edition in full, as well the past year's fortnightly Talking News and quarterly magazine Look Hear on the Listen in! page.

We were privileged to have a congratulatory introduction from Fred Dinenage of Meridian TV for our 500th milestone edition. You can listen here to what he had to say. We are now fast approaching our 600th!
