Breakfast Event with Betty Drummond from Champion News Group – July 2013

A lovely sunny morning in July brought us to Hurlston Hall Golf Club, with guest speaker, Betty Drummond from Champion News Group. The story of her rise to success was both fascinating and inspiring…

On 2 March 1994, the first edition of the Southport Champion – created by a team with no premises, no phones, no cars, no stationery and no finance – hit the streets.  Now, Champion Media Group, publishes five weekly free papers in the North West.  Betty’s career is an incredible story of survival and resilience in the chaotic and competitive arena of publishing and media spanning over forty years.

In addition to her work in media and newspapers, she is a leading light in the world of linedancing , and she continues to run the international monthly “Linedancer Magazine” that she launched over 18 years ago.  She organises regular events, holidays and trips as well as designing and selling a range of bespoke line dance footwear.
