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!

The fact I am now outnumbered and have three men in my life (one husband who has the backing of a three-year-old son and a 16-month-old son) means the boys and their toys win! But this evening I […]

Yes in the middle of a recession I gave away a full time salary, company car, mobile, laptop, paid sick leave and 20 days paid holiday a year. Not forgetting my much loved colleagues who had […]

And as my parents only live five minutes from Oswestry Show Ground there really was no excuse. To my delight there was no need for me to have tried to think of any excuses as it was a great […]

No rest for the wicked then! Rhea had ordered me to have the weekend off and start […]

From the screen to the stage… that’s what happened when Chris and Pui from CBeebies hit show ‘Show Me Show Me’ appeared at Shrewsbury’s Theatre Severn. Children, mostly pre-school age, jumped off their seats and did their “groovy moves” as their favourite stars led the way on stage. The show was a huge hit with two-and-a-half-year-old Eddie from the start […]

It is difficult to type because my hands are red raw after attempting to give the Russian Ice Stars the applause they deserved following tonight’s Cinderella on Ice performance at Shrewsbury’s Theatre Severn. Telling the story of Cinderella the stars gave outstanding performances from beginning to end with much more than ice skating skills to entertain the audience. To fulfill […]

I headed to Theatre Severn yesterday to see the world renowned Russian Ice Stars testing their skates for this weeks performance of Cinderella on Ice. It was a tantalising taster of what visitors to the theatre will see this week and I immediately got my tickets for tonight’s (THURSDAY) show. I have watched series after series of Dancing on Ice […]
