Over the 27 years that Joy and I have lived in Eccleshall I have been involved with radio, television and the local press. Mostly promoting the town, its businesses, organisations and people. I was involved briefly with Stafford Hospital Radio and I had a early morning ‘what’s in the papers’ spot on local radio during my years as a newsagent.
I write a weekly column in four local newspapers, the Staffordshire Newsletter and the Stone Newsletter, the Market Drayton Advertiser and the Newport Advertiser. I supply a weekly press release to local media.
I supply two monthly magazines with articles and photographs about Eccleshall, the Stone & Eccleshall Gazette and the Eccleshall Life.
I enjoy a friendly relationship with Stafford FM who print my weekly column on their website and I appear on the Ray Crowther show every so often either promoting Eccleshall or the Rotary Clubs.
Every week I supply a general press release to all of the local newspapers, radio stations and television channels with items often appearing promoting Eccleshall.
I am the honorary press officer for a number of local organisations including the Eccleshall Parish Council, Eccleshall Festival, Eccleshall Singers and promote through the columns and items many of the events and happenings in the area.
