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.

Recently came across the most helpful site when looking to buy a commercial marquee, considering it’s a commitment deciding to go in the marquee business I decided to ‘snoop’ around DIY Marquees website to get an idea of the ethos and reliability of the company. DIY marquees has an excellent reputation in the industry, however, I was intent on doing my own research.
The first thing I noticed going on the blog posts is the transparent way in which each post is written thus showing that the owners of the business are open, honest, passionate and willing to go the extra mile to ensure their customers have all the knowledge they need thus making a success of their business.
I came across this special post that I wanted to share as this sheds light on the history of the company.
The first marquees sold by C & D King Ltd
DIY Marquees is part of C & D King Ltd, a company that has been manufacturing for over 30 years. Originally the manufacturing of clothing was bigger than marquees but over the years the balance has reversed.
Over Xmas I found some photographs from the early years.
This is c 1983 and we think the first marquee built by us. A lot of work for a 3x6m!
This is c 1984. The marquee in the background is likely to have been the 3rd or 4th one we built/sold (a bit different to the thousands we have sold since!).
Circled top left is Mary who had just joined after leaving school. Mary is now head of production and responsible for much of the smooth running of the company. Bottom right is lil’ ol me. Also featured are my brother, mother & grandparents. Quite the family company!
There are numerous actions a business can take to reduce energy costs and Carbon Reduction Wales. Energy management Services plays a key role but it’s also important not to overlook the other end of the process – the steps you take before that precious energy even reaches you; that is, the deal you sign up to and the way you manage energy purchasing.
There are numerous variables, enormous volatility in prices and an endless array of contract options. But while this may be daunting, getting it right can deliver major savings and significant competitive advantages.
The three aspects of buying gas and electricity that make them different from most other products or services you purchase are the timing of the purchase, your company’s appetite for risk and the skills and knowledge needed to get it right.
Timing is crucial because market prices fluctuate quickly and massively. Some changes are foreseeable, such as seasonal demand, while others, such as unrest in the Middle East, can sometimes be totally unforeseen and could send energy prices soaring in hours.
Consequently, you must clearly understand markets and the forces driving them and constantly monitor them to both take advantage of opportunities as they arise and avoid being caught flat-footed.
Different businesses have different appetites for risk and this has a profound influence on energy purchasing. Most contracts are either “fixed term” or “flexible”, the latter giving a degree of control over prices and potentially make savings – but at greater risk.
To find a contract with the right level of risk for your business you need to know the options available.
Skills and knowledge
Finally, if you are responsible for energy procurement you must be familiar with the myriad of different opportunities provided by energy suppliers and negotiate with them to get the best deals.
In all these things, familiarity, experience and industry knowledge are crucial. Energy purchasing has become an increasingly specialist full-time role and an industry of experts has grown up to operate between energy suppliers and business users. Companies like UES Energy constantly monitor market fluctuations and the full spectrum of suppliers’ contracts to help clients find the best options.
Tantric Journey Tantric Workshop London
Tantra is a growing ancient culture and art in the Western world due to the rise in human disconnection. The world’s technology has grown sophisticated that there are various modes of communication and point of contact but unfortunately very little human connection due to isolation by choice. People are no longer connected to themselves or their loved ones as much as they should be, busy schedules, increasing commitments, lack of money, broken homes, substance abuse, uncontrollable social dynamics, sexual abuse, physical abuse, propaganda and media intervention are some of the few reasons to hold account for this predicament.
Tantra holds the key to connection – to create connection to your inner self which in return will allow you to create connection with others and your loved ones. In a society that reminds people to be humane Tantra will help heal past hurt as the goal and process of Tantra is to surpass hurt in order to attain happiness and bliss.
Having worked with over 3000 women from all over the world spanning across U.S, Europe, U.K and Asia and having recognized the dire need of healing therapy to reconstruct people, I took the initiative to introduce Tantric massage training UK. Tantric Journey School of Healing and Awakening, my brainchild, was opened to help people heal and teach the art of healing to anyone who wanted to become a healer. Tantric Journey School of Healing and Awakening teaches the pioneer therapy called ‘Tantric Journey Bodywork’. Bodywork is an artisanship crafted with years of research, teachings and validations by masters of the art in order to apply the healing massage techniques that bring about Emotional Detox.
Tantric massage in London is abundant but many do not hold the essence of the Tantra teaching as they are only intended for pleasure, but whereas the essence of Tantric massages is to heal and connect to higher source energy to live at optimum. This is done by acting as mediator to our client to help the client to remove negative stagnant emotions in the cellular memory in the body’s cells that block the positive energy flow (positive emotions) that contribute to our health, love, happiness and ecstasy.
Tantric Journey Bodywork can be set apart from many standard Tantra massages as every client I treat has always had near 100% success rate in healing. As I mentioned before, the Tantric Journey Bodywork is not purely intended for pleasure, the Tantric massage is performed to heal past trauma such as sexual abuse, physical abuse and psychological abuse that is stored in the body’s cellular memory. Tantra is weaving the spiritual body, emotional body and the physical body in order to connect to the divine source energy to attain a state of bliss and happiness.
Therefore, I work as a meditator assisting the weaving by removing stagnant negative emotions and energy blocks and physical blocks stored as toxins in the body. The client is subjected to a well-planned procedure before the Tantric massage treatment. At a comfortable pace between the practitioner (me) and the client in environment that is safe to the client, the client goes through talking therapy, body movements such as yoga, breath work, sounds such as mantras and eventually the Tantric massage treatment at her own pace. Most importantly, I will meet the client where she is, accepting who she is with unconditional love and take her on the inner journey where ever she wants to go.
I have also treated couples in order to re –kindle love and resurrect their relationships by increasing trust and intimacy.
Apart from performing the Tantric massage in London and offering Tantra Teacher Training courses every month and weekend Tantric workshops London, now my teachings have been extended to Thailand. I am conducting an Emotional Detox through Tantra & Tao Bodywork at the Tao Garden Health Spa & Resort in Chiang Mai in Thailand with the Qigong Grandmaster Mantak Chis onthe 03rd of July 2016, click here for further details (http://www.tantricjourney.com/products-classes/detox-tantric-tao-bodywork/)
Tantric Journey School of Healing and Awakening conducts its Tantric workshops in London at the Tantric Journey Temple. The workshops are of three types namely, Tantra Taster Evening, Tantra Teacher Training Course and Emotional Detox through Tantra & Tao Bodywork.
Tantra Taster Evening is intended for the Tantra novice to be introduced to Tantra and its teachings. The workshop will showcase how Tantra can be integrated into your life and its beneficial aspects. The Tantra Teacher Training course is a certified Tantric massage training UK one of its kind, for anyone who want to learn the art of Emotional Detox through Tantra & Tao Bodywork in order to start a career or add an extra skill to their portfolio. And last the weekend workshop is the Emotional Detox through Tantra and Tao Bodywork is intended for coupled and singles to learn and experience the art of Emotional Detox through Tantra and Tao Bodywork to release negative emotions such as hurt and trauma in order to cultivate and build loving relationships with themselves, their loved ones and others.
Therefore Tantra and the Tantric treatments and teachings by the Tantric Journey School of Healing and Awakening can revolutionize human connectivity.

You will become liberated and free your mind of these worries. Experience the freedom with the Tantric Journey and your life will never be the same again.

Chefs get asked the same questions around this time of year and it normally involves how to cook a turkey. This week’s book, Christmas, by Gordon Ramsay has the answers plus this alternative lunch.
So if you don’t fancy turkey why not try pan-fried duck breast which marries very well with the orange and the cranberry sauce then the Christmas bombe. This is a must buy book for Christmas, full of fabulous recipes. We’ll have some more festive ideas for you next week. Ciao!
Best turkey recipe and more….
Pan-fried duck with spiced orange and cranberry sauce
4 duck breasts, about 225g each
4 juniper berries
Pinch of caraway seeds
1 tsp allspice
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
For the spiced orange and cranberry sauce:
100ml ruby port
100g fresh cranberries
Finely grated zest and juice of 1 orange
½ cinnamon stick
1 star anise
300ml chicken stock
1-2 tsp cranberry or redcurrant jelly, to taste
30g butter, diced
PREPARATION: 20 MINUTES
COOKING TIME: 20 MINUTES
Lightly score the skins of the duck breasts with a sharp knife. Using a pestle and mortar, grind the juniper berries, caraway seeds, allspice, 1 tsp salt and a few grinds of pepper to a powder. Rub the spice mix all over the duck breasts and leave to stand for about 10 minutes.
Lay the duck breasts, skin side down, in a dry heavy-based large frying pan and gradually turn up the heat. Fry for 5-10 minutes, until most of the fat has rendered and the skin is golden brown.
Turn the duck breasts over and lightly brown the other side for a couple of minutes, or until they feel slightly springy when pressed. Remove from the pan and leave to rest in a warm place while you make the sauce.
For the sauce, pour off excess fat from the frying pan and place over a high heat. Pour in the port, stirring to deglaze, and let it bubble for a minute. Add the remaining ingredients, except the butter, and bring to the boil.
Let it bubble until the liquid has reduced by two-thirds and thickened to a syrupy consistency. The cranberries should be very soft; squash a few with a wooden spoon, leaving the others whole. Add any juices from the resting duck. Taste and adjust the seasoning and add a little more jelly if desired. Finally, add the butter and shake the pan to incorporate it as it melts.
Slice the duck breasts on the diagonal and fan them out on warmed serving plates. Spoon the sauce around the duck and serve with parsnip purée and creamed cabbage with thyme if you like.
