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!

Having a client who is a massage therapist really can prove very beneficial at times………. Tessa Kirk, of In Good Hands Massage http://www.ingoodhandsmassage.co.uk/ paid me a visit today at my home, and brought along her massage table.

By Lisa Rowley It’s that time of year when people who you have not seen for months, or even years, get in touch with Christmas greetings. With social networking sites, such as Facebook, or even email, it’s so much easier nowadays and an instant way to send your festive best wishes. I must admit I find myself on Christmas Day […]

By Kirsty Smallman It’s always good to share knowledge and get some advice from your fellow businesspeople.

Bosses don’t always get the chance to […]

Approaching the door with anticipation I simply saw lots of stands, lots of people and lots of products. But what would it actually be like? From bright coloured printed cushions to sparkling cupcakes, there was plenty to catch the eye. I had […]

By Dani Wozencroft I’m not very good with numbers, never have been. I am better with words, and I’m also quite nosey. Not really a surprise that I became a journalist then.
