David Atkinson

Travel writer

“I have worked with Julie on several occasions, especially on travel stories around Cumbria. What I really liked was the way she understood what makes a story angle, what a writer is looking for and how to get the best out of the clients to make a great story - not just an advertorial.”

Owner and Proprietor of the award winning Number 43 in Arnside

"I have known Julie since I opened Number 43 when she was PR manager with Cumbria Tourism and was totally professional and proactive in attracting quality journalists to the county, so I was delighted to hear Julie was launching Lakes PR. As a client I find her proactive, professional and discreet, working as my business demands and not to her convenience.”

Abi Lloyd

General Manager of Punch Bowl Inns & Manager of The Plough Inn,

"We took on Lakes PR last summer as we wanted some help shouting about our brand new rooms. Since then, Julie has worked tirelessly to secure reviews and get The Plough featured in key national and regional newspapers, glossy magazines and top websites. Nothing is ever too much trouble and there is no job too big or small. We would have no hesitation in recommending Lakes PR to anyone and look forward to more future successes.”
