New Listener's Representative

Last week, we welcomed for the first time, our new listener's representative to our committee meeting. Brian Head went blind overnight and has been receiving our service for a few years. Whilst he subscribes to many audio publications, he still likes receiving our recordings of the Henley Standard because we are the only ones to keep in him in touch with local news.
It was interesting to hear his views on going to the cinema and theatre because one might think this wouldn't appeal to the visually impaired but he told us some shows and films have specially audio described performances/screenings similar to audio described television so he would like us to include the local entertainment listings each week.
