Following last years successful sailing day event, PCR once again hosted a corporate day out at sea, courtesy of Fairview Sailing.

Divided into two teams of 8, we assembled in the morning for breakfast before taking to the waters from Port Hamble Marina on board two Oceanis 37 boats. Following a pleasant morning with glorious sunshine, we continued to sail into the afternoon with temperatures soaring, whilst tucking into some snacks and a spot of lunch on board.

Just over a year ago, PCR discussed the worrying trend which had seen an increase in business insolvencies, with the UK high street being one of the main sectors severely affected and falling victim to the immensely challenging trading conditions.

This was highlighted in our article The Ominous Predicament of the UK High Street in April 2018 which used the example of Toys R Us explaining how the emergence of online shopping and a significant lack of investment played a key role in its administration. Shortly after the demise of Toys R US, a domino effect on other retailers set in, with well-known high street brands such as Maplin’s, Warren Evans, Homebase, Carpetright and even Arcadia Group either collapsing or experiencing severe difficulties causing them to undertake a restructuring process.

On Thursday 30 May 2019, PCR exhibited at the fifth Hillingdon Business Show organised by the Hillingdon Chamber of Commerce and Brunel University London.

Each year, the expo welcomes over a thousand delegates and champions more than a hundred local businesses, in what has fast become the largest free business-to-business event in West London and beyond.

It was therefore a great opportunity for exhibitors to meet other local businesses and for the public to find out more about the services available to them in their local community. At the same time, it provided PCR with a platform to develop relationships with these businesses who may not have been aware of the services we provide or the nature of our business.
