Catherine Collins – deputy editor

As a former feature and entertainments writer for the Daily Echo and various other publications (and now working in communications and PR) – I believe everyone has a story to tell… it’s just a matter of helping them to tell it. I’m really looking forward to being involved and writing for In Common and cannot wait to see what stories the local community has! In my spare time (which admittedly is rare), I enjoy helping rescue dogs, football (with three boys that was never a choice) and music.
