RUMM Energy Management Solutions & Savings – In partnership with RPC

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.

Marquees for sale are available in a range of sizes and a range of qualities

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.

An interesting article on bullying

Is your child being bullied? Every parents worst nightmare?
Learn about what parents can do to prevent their child from being involved in bullying at school perhaps get yourself involved in a school bullying programme

Although one cannot realistically ‘bully-proof’ a child one can certainly reduce the likelihood of a child being bullied or bullying others at school. Here are ten suggestions – expanded in a book, with research evidence.

  1. From the earliest days of child’s life do what you can to ensure he or she feels securely attached to a care-giver. Insecurity and severe anxiety during infancy can affect the capacity of a child to relate confidently to peers at school in later years.
  2. Be cautious about the choice and use of childcare centres. Overuse at too early an age of sub-standard centres can be psychological harmful to some children and affect their ability later on to relate to other children at school.
  3. Practice an authoritative and supportive style of parenting, recognizing that as the child grows older he or she will require more opportunities to act independently.
  4. Avoid an authoritarian, cold, over-controlling way of relating to your child. It can result in children behaving aggressively towards their peers at school.
  5. Don’t act as a bully yourself. Your child may copy you.
  6. Don’t be over-permissive either. Children need to know where there are boundaries to what they may do.
  7. Don’t be over-protective, limiting too much the experiences your child can learn from. Overprotection can lead to a child being bullied.
  8. Acknowledge the positive things your child does. This will make it easier for the child to be self-accepting, more resilient and less affected by any bullying.
  9. Promote empathic concern for others through your own behaviour. This can help children to be more accepting of others – and more inclined to cooperate and less inclined to bully.
  10. Teach (and practice) the golden rule: ‘Do unto others as you would they do unto you

Plan Your 2015 Event Early To Avoid Disappointment

You may be thinking, it’s only July, why would I need to be planning for 2015?  But think of it this way, the school holidays are upon us which means 6 weeks of trying to juggle work and the children, and before you know it, it will be September which means its downhill all the way to Christmas.  If you have an event which you wish to take place in 2015, such as a wedding, a party or perhaps a corporate event for work, you really need to start thinking about getting the basics booked up.  2015 sees a number of large sporting events including the England Rugby World Cup and the NBA Global Games in London, so events companies will be busy organising celebratory events and availability may be limited.

First of all, you need to choose your location.  Many hotels and function rooms will be booked up months in advance – particularly during the summer months or in the run up to Christmas.  Hiring a winter marquee hire will give you some valuable added flexibility, after all if you have the perfect location but the room is simply not big enough, the marquee can make the venue a viable option.  Don’t forget marquees can often also be added on to provide a temporary extension of an existing room.

Once you’ve booked the venue, it can be a good idea to book the caterer too.  Reputable caterers will already have bookings in place for 2015, so have a think about the type of food which would be most appropriate for your event, and starting getting some quotes.  It might also be worth asking if the caterers can provide serving staff too – especially if you are hosting a sit down meal or if you wish canapés to be offered to guests on arrival.

Popular entertainers and other suppliers will no doubt also be in great demand, so if you have a particular band or DJ which you wish to perform at your party, make sure you get your booking in well in advance!  Items such as decorations and flowers can be left until closer to the big day, but the more you can organise in advance, the lesMars worry and stress you should have in in the run up to the event.

For more information on planning an event or to find out if marquee hire would be viable at your favourite venue, please get in touch with the team.
