Business Lancashire is delighted to announce that it will be working in partnership with Blog Preston to share business related copy as well as working together on future projects.

Commented Sam Whitear, Director, Business Lancashire: “Blog Preston is recognised as Preston’s leading community website hub for news, views and information. By working together, we can ensure that we provide the latest relevant news to our readers.”

Blog Preston, started in 2009, is a community interest company, run by Ed Walker and Luke Beardsworth – along with a host of contributors from across the city.

Founder and editor Ed Walker expanded: “As Blog Preston turns eight-years-old, we’re looking for ways to expand what we do and working with Business Lancashire, we hope to be able to bring stories about the city’s businesses and the great people who work in them to a wider audience.

“More than 50,000 Prestonians read Blog Preston each week, so it’s a great chance to explain some of the fascinating businesses and ideas we have going on in the area. Likewise our stories about life in Preston can help keep businesses informed of what’s happening in the city.”

After 34 years working in numerous operational and communications disciplines for three FTSE companies (Yorkshire Electricity; Meggitt and BAE Systems), at over a dozen locations, on 24 November 2016, I became the inaugural editor of Business Lancashire. Business Lancashire is a good news, Lancashire focused, business website and daily newsletter. It is a partnership between The Samuel James Group and the North and Western Lancashire Chamber of Commerce. Over the years, I have written hundreds of press releases, features for trade magazines, copy for websites and brochures, edited in-house magazines and newsletters, as well as presenting a radio programme on Chorley FM. This experience has given me the ideal background for editing Business Lancashire.
