Cheshire Life editor Louise Taylor is accustomed to writing about the county’s celebrities and VIPs - but she’s now beginning to feel like one herself.
In the space of a couple of days, Louise was given not one but two prestigious public honours. The Cheshire Agricultural Society announced her to be the Patron of the Royal Cheshire County Show 2017 - and the following day the Manchester Evening News listed her as one of the top 100 Inspiring Women in the region.
Louise, who has been with Archant for 16 years and in her current role for nine years, said: "I was astounded by the calibre of the women on the list: high-flying international lawyers, wealthy entrepreneurs, and even actors Maxine Peake and Anna Friel. There are no other journalists on the list so it says something about the role of Cheshire Life in the region. It’s an honour for the magazine, really, rather than me.
"That’s also how I see the compliment of being Patron of the Royal Cheshire County Show. The magazine is held in great affection by the local established community. Over the past few years I’ve got to know the Show committee and they really appreciate the support we give them."
The Royal Cheshire Show is the region’s premier agricultural event in the North West of England and is held on two days in June each year. As patron Louise will be responsible for giving out prizes and addressing guests and spectators as the show closes on the second day.
