Welcome to West Lothian Boomerang (WL Boomerang) a registered charity providing a talking newspaper service for the West Lothian area.

Produced by volunteers for those who are blind and partially sighted or unable to read easily from local newspapers. The West Lothian Courier is recorded onto memory sticks and supplied to registered blind, partially sighted or unable to read small print members. In addition you can also hear the latest recording by clicking on the episode player bars below.

WL Boomerang is produced weekly with recording days on Thursdays and Fridays at our studio in Whitburn. If you would like to volunteer or know of someone who would like to volunteer, get in touch. We have a wide range of roles available such as readers, technicians, duplication or distribution (training will be given), we would love to hear from you.

Go On, join us today !
