The National Grid Company has appointed six agencies to handle its

ongoing pounds 150,000 regional communications programme.



North East agency Grant Sterling was the only incumbent to have its

contract renewed.



New appointees are Hunter Public Relations for the Eastern region of the

country, Barkers PR for the Midlands, Greenwood Tighe in the North West,

JBP Associates in the South West and Field Communications for the South

East.



The agencies that lost out were Systems Publicity, Pendragon

Consultants, Peter Bowen Publicity and Stansfield Crane.



The shake-up was prompted by the arrival of Sally Lingard as National

Grid head of public relations in February - two months after the company

was floated on the London Stock Exchange.
