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!

There are plenty of people who believe Valentines is another commercial day forcing people to spend money when there is no need. But I am of the opinion that Valentines is what you make it. For me it is one day of the year when my husband and I reminisce about the fun and romantic things we did on February […]

Rebecca Dutton has recently returned from three years in Canada and finds the snow experience in the UK a little different from her experiences in Saskatchewan….

Today I took an hour out of my day to be lathered in oil and wrapped in “cling film” before lying on a heated bed and covered in a warm duvet. Relaxing music on, lights dimmed and sleep. Perfect lunch hour – much better than an hour of hard-core exercise in the gym. Intrigued? Well that hour was spent having […]

It is common knowledge among my friends that I am a fan of the musical genre….many birthdays have been spent in the big smoke with friends and family taking in another musical masterpiece and heading home raving about what we had seen. But now there is no need for me to travel to London to satisfy my need to watch […]

From the moment I can remember the first Saturday of August has always been spent at Oswestry Show and 30 years on that day is spent exactly the same way. As a young girl I remember proudly going to see daddy on “the stand”. Now my two boys proudly run up to grandad on the stand begging for permission to climb […]

Persuading a cheeky 18-month-old boy to sit still for longer than five minutes is a challenge in itself, so I approached Theatre Severn with a certain amount of trepidation to watch a stage show with my son for the first time. The Wheels On The Bus is aimed at children of all ages and is a classic “sing along” affair, […]

Going to the cinema is all part of growing up – meeting people there, buying tickets, queuing for sweets and nachos, queuing for the screen, racing to get the best seats……I have had some great cinema experiences. But now I am a bit older, although I still love a trip to the local Cineworld and a bag of popcorn, I […]

We always say if there’s water our two-year-old son Eddie will be happy but we didn’t quite need so many downpours during a three day break to Sewerby, Bridlington in East Yorkshire. But we now know the weather makes no difference when you are staying at the luxury barn conversions of Field House Farm Cottages in Sewerby. Our cottage, Ostler’s […]
