What's happening?

We are based in the lovely county of Shropshire and although we work with clients in a wide range of surrounding counties, and virtually with businesses across the UK, we love where we live and love to shout about it.

Shouting about things is really our bag so this is the page where we tell you what our clients have been up to, what's happening in Shropshire, what's happening with J&PR - and of course our advice and tips!

Like many teenage girls I read Pride and Prejudice, I watched the film and I fell in love with Jane Austen. I then went on to read other Austen novels and watch the film adaptations – but I never had the chance to see any on the stage.

Every office has somebody who says “yes” to everything – that person at J&PR is me! (Kirsty!) So it came as no surprise to the team that we were signed up to the Macmillan World Championship Coracle Race. So did we practice? No! Did we watch videos to learn a technique? No! Did we know what to expect? No! We […]
