I worked with Megan for the first time in 2017 and what a brilliant experience. I started knowing very little about the piece I was writing about and the area, but she worked hard to help me come up with a range of ideas which fitted in with our brand and was enthusiastic about the venture.
It’s refreshing to work with someone in PR who is very knowledgeable about the topics you’re working on together and is also genuinely enthusiastic about collaboration. Had a fantastic experience and wouldn’t hesitate recommending Megan and Rural Roots PR to anyone.

I’ve worked with Megan, both as a journalist and as a PR. Her knowledge of local media, in particular newspapers, and its requirements for print, digital and social media, means she is well-placed to find the most news-worthy story behind her clients and help turn it into a piece that is ready to run. Her photographic skills have also come in handy.
Megs is particularly passionate about rural affairs, going back to her days writing the farming column in the Rutland Times and it shines through in everything she does.
She’s enthusiastic about collaboration between local newspapers and her clients and as a result, we have made some lasting relationships.
I can’t recommend her highly enough.

I’ve worked with Megan on a number of different stories from a wide range of local organisations. Megan is always on hand to help and assist, and ensure the story works for us on the radio as much as for her client. With last minute reminders, and targeted press releases, I know that Megan shares the same passion for the local area as we do, we work very well together and I value her journalistic judgement.

Megan was my absolute rock!! Plus, she has literally the best contacts EVER and I have met loads of really great business contacts. My business would not be what it is now had it not been for her help. Thank you Megan!!!!

I’ve worked with Megan for a number of years in both PR and journalism. She has the rare ability to deliver exceptionally well across both disciplines. She is conscientious, client-focused and always willing to help - whatever it takes and whatever the deadline. Megan’s passion for all things rural has always been evident and I’m delighted she has been able to translate this into a successful career.

Rural Roots PR is exactly the support our small business needs and provides excellent value for money.
Megan is a talented copywriter and knows how to engage an audience. She also has great connections, and we’ve had some really interesting national PR because of her network!

Megan was able to provide support, for Peterborough Astronomical Society, in a number of ways, including…
• advice on an appropriate strategy
• advice on the channels available on the internet and which channels would be able to meet our objectives
• detailed training in the use of our chosen channel
• advice on planning our campaign, so that our page would be attractive, interesting and informative
For a group like ours, progress has been fast and exciting but the great thing is, thanks to Megan’s help, we know what we want to do and have the confidence to do it.
— Phil Adams, Peterborough Astronomical Society
Megan is such a delightful lady to discuss ideas and concepts with. She came up with very practical suggestions for me and my business. I appreciate her attitude, approach and practicality.

Top local journalist Megan Allen has helped me to establish a networking group for female entrepreneurs in the Leicestershire and Rutland area in record time. No messing, Megan just rolls up her sleeves and gets on with it, she has bundles of energy and enthusiasm for all her clients and she is excellent at making introductions. We have also worked together on a charity festival and Christmas fair locally and will do so again this year as it was such a success. She really is a dream to work with.
