Thanks, Beryl, for your BIG part in All Together NOW!

beryleMAINALL OF us at All Together NOW! were saddened to hear of the death of journalist Beryl Taylor.

Beryl spent her entire career at Ellesmere Port – almost 40 years at the Pioneer, and another 15 years running her own PR agency.

All Together NOW! editor Tom Dowling said: “Beryl helped me so much when I joined the Pioneer in 1970 as a 16-year-old cub reporter. She was kind, tolerant – and extremely well liked and respected.

“Unknown to most people, she had a very tough upbringing. Her father died in a work-related accident when she was four, and her mother passed away five years later, leaving nine-year-old Beryl to care for her younger sister.

“As a co-founder of the Ellesmere Port and Neston Talking Newspaper for blind people, she was very aware of the disadvantage suffered by disabled people and carers.

“And at a time when editors shunned disability from their pages, she succeeded in getting more and more disability-related material into the Pioneer.

“Beryl’s inspirational work undoubtedly helped sow the seeds for All Together NOW!

“I’m so thankful, and so glad, to have known her.”
