The RPC Group is Europe’s leading manufacturer of rigid plastic packaging. With just under 50 autonomous sites in 12 countries, the company employs in excess of 6,500 people.
RUMM was asked to investigate energy usage at RPC’s Llantrisant plant and provide solutions and suggestions for reducing the annual energy bill.
Following the completion of the aM&T system, where 17 meters were installed across the site, a benchmarking exercise then took place in order to ascertain where energy was being used and equally where it was being used non-efficiently. (energy management UK)
RUMM and RPC then engaged in an energy management partnership to achieve savings. This included regular weekly meetings to discuss options that could save the company money.
Site analysis was carried out based on production output, SEC and this was benchmarked to reduce consumption.
As a result of the measures put in place, energy consumption in the first 5 months dropped from 1354528 kWh to 1131995 kWh, with specific energy consumption reducing by 14%. This equated to a £120k saving in the first year alone.
When looking to buy a marquee as well as looking at the materials used you should also look at the design and functionality of the marquee
Marquees for sale are available in a range of sizes and a range of qualities. The better quality marquees use thicker steel framework (34mm upwards) and PVC covers rather than PE or poly/PVC. The weight of the PVC material used on the marquees (measured in gsm -grams per square metre) is an indication of the thickness but not the quality, the true strength of PVC comes from the inner core material before it is coated.
When looking to buy a marquee as well as looking at the materials used you should also look at the design and functionality of the marquee. With a good design additional bracing can make a marquee stronger eliminating the need for a thicker framework. Having interchangeable side panels can give much greater functionality so a marquee can be tailored for any site on which it is erected.
Throughout the world marquees are referred to as party tents but in the UK the term party tents usually refers to smaller marquees 3m, 4m or 6m wide made from steel tube. Party tent style marquees can usually offer a stronger but more economical alternative to traditional larger marquees – party tents for sale
Marquee accessories like linings, lighting and flooring can transform a marquee from a shelter to an impressive temporary structure suitable for any party or event. It is worth researching the availability of replacement parts to ensure you will not be let down in the future for the want of one damaged component.

Some children go trick-or-treating. This means that they dress up and go to other peoples’ houses, knocking on the door for treat of sweets or a snack.

Functions of Female Ejaculation
An ancient Tantric subject often over looked and considered taboo relating it to the most indecent of thoughts in the mainstream arena – Female Ejaculation lies as the tainted and unexplained in the female Sexual Health industry.
Female Ejaculation is colloquially known as ‘squirting’.
Often dismissed as incontinence and as a probable condition befallen upon certain females; the functionality of the Female Ejaculation remains scientifically unexplained and left unknown. The nature of scientific disinterest contributes to solid fact that only a certain number of women also only quite a handful number, have publicly reported to be able to ejaculate in comparison to the mass population. As the society moved onto a less emotional platform to a logical and scientific plateau amongst patriarchy, the art of love making became biological and anything that did not serve physical purpose was rendered useless. Hence the subject has not been thoroughly studied – at least to console the women in the dark. However, the chemical composition has been found to have prostatic secretions and been scientifically validated stating that the excretion (fluid) from the ejaculation differs from urine completely overhauling the blind accusations of incontinence and bladder dysfunctions.
Also having had the Adult Film industry exploiting this scientific disinterest, the subject of Female Ejaculation was tucked at the hidden corner of the closet for a tarred image.
Being a British Pioneer in the area of Body Work and the first certified Advanced Tantra Educator in UK (from Source School of Tantra) I, Mal, have bridged the misunderstanding of the function of Female Ejaculation. Using Tantric and Toa techniques, I intend to release negative emotions from the female body and Female Ejaculation being the essence of the treatment.
The excretion (fluid) from the female is referred to as the Amrita in Sanskrit. Amrita means sweet nectar of life. The Japanese doctor Masaru Emoto claims that human consciousness affects molecular structure of water. When this finding is related to the fluid structure of the Amrita, it is certain under a microscope negative molecule of emotions will be found.
Thus giving a name to the face of the unexplained functionality of the Female Ejaculation through the art of Tantra and Tao teaching.
Through the belief that the callused negative emotions can armor the core of the female sexuality draping away pleasure and ‘being’ of a woman, my body work for emotional release has been articulately seasoned through decades of practice and perfecting over 3000 women all over the world.
The punch line being Female Ejaculation is vital and ‘revoltingly’ healthy for the overall wellbeing of a woman that only can be regarded as ‘normal’.
Halloween is widely celebrated in the UK with lots of fun; the children go trick or treating around the neighbourhood seeing who can collect the most sweets. It’s become a famous tradition and one that the entire family can partake.
We found an unusual selection of favourite retro sweets in a ‘Happy Halloween’ gift tube which would make a great Halloween gifts.
A variety of retro sweets are included: love hearts; fruit salads; candy shrimps, flying saucers, refresher bars, white mice and a Swizzel lolly.

Do you suffer from female impotence? Often women do not seek help for fear of being labelled, fear of being inadequate or through embarrassment. Those do seek help often find that the treatment offered falls short of their needs and results in a deeper sense of despair.
Eighty per cent of women who seek help for sexual dysfunction complain of having no sexual desire, libido, tiredness, depression, illness, stress, anxiety, relationship disharmony and negative body image. Although it may not appear serious at first, the condition can cause much unhappiness and frustration if it is not talked about and effectively treated.
Mal Weeraratne an expert in female sexuality explains that the mainstream courses of treatment including marriage guidance and sex therapy often prove ineffective because they do not address and treat the whole problem. Mal who is the founder of Tantric Journey has worked in the sexual therapy sector since 1994 and in an authority on the subject of the female orgasm, he has helped thousands of women regain sexual feelings and lead happy live with fulfilled intimate relationships.
Mal explains how unfortunately, when sex has equalled pain (either physical or emotional), a vicious cycle often sets in and women avoid sex altogether or unintentionally put up barriers known as ‘Body Armouring’. Wilhelm Reich the pioneer psychotherapist and sexologist who postulated the orgasm theory: That full orgasm is the very centre of human experience and ultimately determines the happiness of the human race, developed the theory of Body Armouring, the process whereby past traumatic experiences are stored in the body muscle tissue at cellular level and as a result the body’s tissues harden, creating tension and blocking energy in the area that has been traumatised. This means that traces of the emotional content of every negative sexual experience have been recorded in the muscular tissue of your genitals.
Mal explains how past traumatic experiences such as sexual abuse, rape, complicated childbirth, surgery or negative attitudes to sex may all contribute to the lack of ability to orgasm as every unsatisfied sexual experience is recorded in the cellular memory of your body. Creating an invisible armouring, that your body creates to reduce its vulnerability to pain, discomfort and possible danger. There is a parallel to this process and this is the reduction in the ability to experience pleasure.
Research has shown that only a quarter of women achieve orgasm through penile penetration, leaving three quarters in need of additional clitoral stimulation. It is estimated that 12 per cent of women are anorgasmic (never reach a climax). In fact because the sexual organs have been subjected to vigorous condemnation from childhood, onwards, the pelvic basin has become a major storehouse of negative imprints, restricting and inhibiting the woman’s ability to enjoy full sexual capacity and preventing the full enjoyment of orgasmic release. In effect the armouring process not only protects from pain, but also from the woman’s own desires and instincts.
Mal explains how his pioneering treatment Tantric Journey can help anyone who wants to improve the quality and well-being of their life, by teaching them to understand the needs of their own body, mind and spirit and being able to communicate effectively to fulfil and gain their needs and desires.
He explains how we are all born free and pure, with positivity and love, which is the natural state of our being. However, throughout our existence we are subjected to a barrage of negative beliefs, conditioning, physical and psychological abuse which slowly builds up layer upon layer of negativity. What Tantric Journey aims to do is peel back these layers and restore a state of balance and positivity.
Tantric Journey begins with four key practices:
- Deep breathing with focus
- Body movement with feelings
- Chanting with expression of emotions
- Tantric Massage to remove negative imprints
Through the practice of Tantric Journey teaching and guidance is offered to teach clients how to become receptive to the four key practices. The process moves at a pace set by the client and helps with sexual dysfunctions, enhancing sexuality; teaching the individual to fully relax and be able to fully let go. Breaking down the layers of negativity and removing Body Armouring, Tantric Journey can help to eliminate aches and pains and help to deal with many negative issues around sexuality leading to a heightened sense of wellbeing and a new ability to enjoy pleasure and sexuality.
There is a popular and generally misguided conception about the features, benefits and needs for marquee heating of a temporary structure. Many a seemingly successful summer event is ruined by the rush for extra layers as the sun sets. Please be aware that many guests don’t bring coats or wraps to summer events – in our opinion neither should they need to.

Our marquee heaters are installed and maintained by specialist heating engineers. They have researched and developed a market leading modern heater portfolio. The heaters are silenced equipment, barely visible within the marquee, with covers to discreetly sit outside the marquee and thermostatically controlled. They are a far cry away from the other available run of the mill marquee heating systems.
In order to keep you warm from our cool breezy summer nights, or keep the chill away from a brisk winter we thoroughly advise that you consider our recommendations.
Marquee Hire modern silenced heaters with low profile diffusers are a far cry from the usual run of the mill marquee heating; as a result they are perfect for winter marquee hire.
For larger scale events marquee hire can also offer a more substantial marquee heating option to re-circulate the air within the temporary structure.
