RUMM Energy Management Solutions & Savings – In partnership with RPC

by admin on Jul.26, 2013, under Business, Energy Management

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

by admin on Aug.05, 2013, under Business, DIY Marquee, Marquee Hire

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.

Lodge Brothers make such a difference within the community

by admin on Mar.21, 2014, under Funeral Services, Personal

Lodge Brothers Memorials Biggleswade love to share news including the community involvements, expansions, thanksgiving services, Memorials Addlestone and Memorials Ashford and many other branches within the Lodge Brothers family of branches.

AV Smith & Sons Say Farewell to Branch Arranger Sheila Sherwood

sheila1

After just two and a half years with the company, Sheila Sherwood, Funeral Arranger at AV Smith & Sons, Hillingdon, is leaving to start a new career with British Airways at nearby Heathrow Airport. In her time with Lodge Brothers, Sheila has arranged just over 250 funerals. She has endeared herself to clients with her calm and empathetic manner, and her colleagues admire lively sense of humour and teamwork.

Her office is festooned with ‘thank-you’ cards from grateful clients and, as this web-site will testify, a whole raft of testimonials.

Our local vicar at St John’s Church, Hillingdon, Reverend Robert Harrison commented, “It has been an absolute pleasure working with Sheila; she has such a kind and caring nature that is so reassuring for bereaved families. She has been an integral part of the very fabric of Hillingdon village life and she will be sorely missed”.

Sheila said, “I have really enjoyed working for Lodge Brothers; the people are fantastic and the job is extremely satisfying, however, I just feel ready for a career move.”

DIY Marquee raising marquees to new heights

by admin on Mar.20, 2014, under DIY Marquee

As you may have noticed our website has changed, this is due to our expansion in to other ranges of marquees. We now have five ranges of marquees across 23 different sizes of marquee culminating in over 70 different marquees to choose from, we believe this means we have the largest range of marquees available for sale in the UK and hope to have the marquee to suit any requirement. We also now stock a heavy duty range of pop-ups and pagodas.

Our two new cheaper ranges probably won’t be of interest to you as a hire company – the party tent range including DIY Party Tent and Pop-Up DIY Marquee range uses PE fabric (only suitable for occasional domestic use) and our new Classic range is made using 500gsm PVC but without the features we believe are essential to hire companies – I wouldn’t recommend hiring out a 6m marquee without eave braces for example.

Our new Professional range should prove popular in the hire industry; it is based on our Commercial framework but with a heavier duty 650gsm PVC roof.

As always our new products and ranges come from feedback from customers (thank you) and our own experience. This is why we are one of the leading designers and suppliers of marquees in Europe. Which we’re quite chuffed about to be honest.

We always like to hear feedback regarding our marquees or website so if you have anything to add or any new product ideas please always send them along.

Eat healthy this summer

by admin on Mar.19, 2014, under Food and Lifestyle

With summer around the corner, the clocks have changed, days are becoming longer with excitement in the air. Everyone is preparing for the summer by getting their tan at a salon, frequenting the gym, people have taken to running and cycling along the Thames. What better way to get into shape than with some scrumptious unusual salads. I found these delicious summer salad recipes from Jamie Oliver, which were too good not to share:

SUMMER CHICKPEA SALAD
INGREDIENTS:

1 small red onion, peeled
1-2 fresh red chillies, deseeded
2 handfuls ripe red or yellow tomatoes
1 lemon
extra virgin olive oil
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
410 g tinned chickpeas, drained, or around 4 large handfuls of soaked and cooked chickpeas
1 handful fresh mint, chopped
1 handful fresh green or purple basil, finely ripped
100 g feta cheese

Chickpeas are pretty under-used in this country, to be honest. In places like Morocco, Italy and Spain they are prized like our Jersey new potato. Still, we have a lot more choice now than we used to have. If you go to a Spanish deli or specialist counter, you will generally be able to find jars of cooked chickpeas in water and these are the ones you want to make this salad really good. They should look a little plumper than tinned chickpeas but, of course, both tinned ones or dried ones can be used successfully. This salad is a great one for making up as you go along; you can use different spices, sun-dried tomatoes and spicy chorizo sausages, for instance.

First of all, finely slice your red onion. Once that’s done, finely slice your chillies then roughly chop your tomatoes, mixing them in with the onion and chillies. Scrape all of this, and the juice, into a bowl and dress with the juice of half a lemon and 3 tablespoons of good extra virgin olive oil. Season to taste. Heat the chickpeas in a pan, then add 90 per cent of them to the bowl. Mush up the remaining chickpeas and add these as well – they will give a nice creamy consistency. Allow to marinate for a little while and serve at room temperature.

Just as you’re ready to serve, give the salad a final dress with the fresh mint and basil. Taste one last time for seasoning – you may want to add the juice from your remaining lemon half at this point. Place on a nice serving dish and crumble over the feta cheese.

SUMMER TOMATO AND HORSERADISH SALADSummer Tomato Salad

INGREDIENTS:
4 large handfuls mixed tomatoes
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
extra virgin olive oil
good-quality red wine vinegar
½ clove garlic, grated
2 teaspoons fresh horseradish, grated, or jarred hot horseradish
1 small handful fresh flat-leaf parsley, finely sliced

For this salad it’s great to try and get a whole mixture of different tomatoes, at room temperature, nice and ripe. Let them sunbathe on the window ledge if need be! Try and get hold of fresh horseradish – give your greengrocer a challenge to get some in.

Cut the bigger tomatoes into slices about 1cm/½ inch thick. You can halve the cherry tomatoes or leave them whole. Then sprinkle them all with a good dusting of sea salt. Put them in a colander and leave them for 30 minutes. What’s going to happen here is that the salt will draw the excess moisture out of the tomatoes, intensifying their flavour. Don’t worry about the salad being too salty, as a lot of the salt drips away.

Place the tomatoes in a large bowl and dress with enough extra virgin olive oil to loosen (approximately 6 tablespoons), and 1–2 tablespoons of vinegar, but do add these to your own taste. Toss around and check for seasoning – you may or may not need salt but will certainly need pepper. Add the garlic. Now start to add the horseradish. Stir in a couple of teaspoons to begin with, toss around and taste. If you like it a bit hotter, add a bit more horseradish. All I do now is get some finely sliced flat-leaf parsley (stalks and leaves) and mix this into the tomatoes. Toss everything together and serve as a wonderful salad, making sure you mop up all the juices with some nice squashy bread.

This salad is fantastic with roast beef, goat’s cheese or jacket potatoes. And to be honest, even if you put these tomatoes in a roasting tray and roasted them with some sausages scattered around them it would be nice.

Whether it’s delicious vegetarian or vegan recipes you’re after, or ideas for gluten or dairy-free dishes, you’ll find plenty here to inspire you.

The combination of the above by Holiday Lets London is a quite a mixture of places and sites to visit in London.

Opened in 1997 the Sea Life London Aquarium is the largest aquarium in London that accommodated an approximate 1 million visitors annually. When not in us the aquarium opens to the public the two classrooms themed on conservation. The classrooms are occupied by an approximate 40,000 school students per year to educate themselves on aquarium conservation. The classrooms work with many conservation organizations such as Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society, Save Our Seas, Shark Trust, Rainforest Concern, Earth Sea Sky and South Pacific Projects. The classrooms educate conservation and breeding programs inclusive of the Cuban Crocodile, seahorse butterfly goodeids and jellyfish. A prominent entertainment company called Merlin Entertainments took over the aquarium in 2008 – a company that overlooks the entertainment at O2 Arena, another attraction site – the largest London entertainment arena in London, that Holiday Lets London recommends visiting. If one is an ardent lover of music, Holiday Lets London suggests visiting the O2 Arena as the indoor entertainment area has design and architectural aspects with the help of the all time famous British band U2.

SEA LIFE London Aquarium Behind the Scenes Tours

In 2008 on purchase of the Sea Life London Aquarium, Merlin Entertainments refurbished the aquarium for £5 million that was completed in 2009 along with additions. The additions to the aquarium were a new underwater tunnel, Shark Walk, a revamped Pacific Ocean tank and a complete rerouting under the care of the architect Kay Eliiot. On its reopening the attraction was officially known as Sea Life Centre.

In 2005, the University of Essex displayed three robotic fish that are supposedly to be inspired by the speed of tuna, the acceleration of pike along with the navigational skills of an eel.

The Sea Life Centre as recently referred to is generally open from 10 am to 7 pm every day of the week. The Sea Life Centre is ideal to take your entire family on an outing that will keep them intrigued by the lovely sea creatures. The two of the attractions inside the aquarium that has received a lot of reviews and delightful comments is the Shark Walk and the Penguins those children seemed to enjoy. As suggested before by Holiday Lets London that the London Eye to be visited which can prove to be another sincere excitement if you have children.  The London Eye is a giant Ferris Wheel that showcases spectacular views of London at the top most height of its ride.  On checking the What’s On In London section you would find other similar attractions that can keep your little ones on their toes.
