Who we are

Benefit from decades of experience, exceptional  contacts and direct results.

At Hope Yard PR, media relations isn’t a dark art. Just hard work and great storytelling mixed with impeccable timing.

Our flair for the written word doesn’t end with print and digital press coverage. Our experience extends to curating client’s social media channels, creating content and devising meaningful influencer campaigns. Hope Yard PR brings together the talents of Hayley Newnham and Samantha Kirton. Combining over half a century’s experience across the travel, fashion and lifestyle sectors, we excel at generating creative, engaging and effective PR campaigns.

We love sharing stories with our media contacts. Our roots may be firmly planted in Cornwall, but our contacts and expertise are far reaching.
