☆¸.•°*”˜˜”*°•.¸☆ ★ ☆¸.•☆☆¸.•°*”˜˜”*°•.¸☆

In 2012….I hope the kindness you’ve given to others returns many times to you.
May you have the hindsight to know where you’ve been,
The foresight to know where you’re going,
And the insight to know when you’re going too far.
May hope, love, and warmth be in your heart’s possessing,
And may the New Year bring you and yours many blessings.
Happy New Year!

Tories trusted on public services – PRimage agree!

Thursday, July 23rd, 2009


As long-standing Conservative supporters, Judy Viitanen (a former Tory District Councillor) and the PRimage team are not surprised that a Populus opinion poll suggests more voters trust the Conservatives to manage public spending cuts without harming key public services, with 38 per cent backing the party compared to 28 per cent supporting Labour.  a-symbol2We are also pleased to hear that David Cameron is to offer an olive branch to the Conservative party’s old guard after the turmoil of the expenses scandal by promoting several of them to senior jobs in his government if the Tories win the next election.

PRimage applaud Tory pledge for shake-up of power!

Tuesday, May 26th, 2009


Judy Viitanen was heartened to read news reports this morning that the Conservative leader, David Cameron, has promised to deliver a dramatic and much needed redistribution of power in response to voter anger and disgust at the scandal of MPs expenses.  Writing in the Guardian, he calls for a shake-up in the way Britain is governed.  He says: “I believe the central objective of the new politics we need should be a massive, sweeping radical redistribution of power.  From the state to the citizens; from government to Parliament; from Whitehall to communities.  From the EU to Britain; from judges to the people; from bureaucracy to democracy.  Through decentralisation, transparency and accountability we must take power away from the political elite and hand it to the man and woman in the street.”  

PRimage believes that Cameron’s vision and pledge will resonate with the vast majority of the electorate ….. ‘Bring it on’ we say!  What’s your opinion?  Please post a comment with your views.

PRimage applaud new laws to tackle careless driving

Tuesday, August 19th, 2008

How many times do you see stupid, selfish drivers using their mobiles behind the wheel? … And how often this impacts on their driving ability, putting themselves (and others) at risk from a fatal accident? PRimage welcome the news that new laws will come into force this week which mean that motorists who kill while using a mobile phone will face prison.

Play safe in the sun! – Sun sense advice from Day Lewis Pharmacy

Tuesday, August 5th, 2008

School’s out for summer and as many families will now be off on holiday, thinking about heading to the beach or letting their children play outside in the sunshine, Primage client, Day Lewis Pharmacy Group wants to raise awareness of safe sun care – and this summer all their 165 pharmacy branches will be offering customers some important and helpful hints to ensure families ‘play safe in the sun’.

Peter Glover, Day Lewis Superintendant Pharmacist tells Judy Viitanen: “Many people may think they know all about avoiding the dangers of the sun, but new statistics suggest that may not always be the case. A report from the European Journal of Cancer reveals that the UK has the highest skin cancer rates for children aged up to 14 and teenagers aged 15 to 19. Sunburn as a child can double the chances of cancer in later life – so kids need to be protected with sunscreen, clothing and shade when spending time outdoors on sunny days. So, SLIP on a shirt – SLAP on a hat and SLOP on some sunscreen .”

Day Lewis is concerned there are still too many people ignoring advice and taking unnecessary risks by not adequately protecting their own and their families’ skin and underestimating the potential harm of overexposure. Research by the British Skin Foundation shows that 37% of parents buy sunscreens with lower than the recommended SPF30 for their children, and they think that by applying sunscreen once, their child is safe. But it is crucial that it is reapplied frequently.

As the UK’s largest independent pharmacy multiple, all Day Lewis pharmacists are geared up to offering expert advice and answering questions on safe sun care – and will be advising parents that when choosing a sunscreen this summer it’s essential to use a high factor product, with an SPF 30 or more, with good UVA + UVB protection. UVA rays penetrate beneath the skin & cause deeper damage and the UVB rays are the ones that burn.

How long do you spend commuting?

Monday, May 19th, 2008

How depressing! Judy Viitaen has learnt that according to research from Work Wise UK and the AA the average commuter spends almost 29 working days each year travelling to work – more than most people’s annual leave! It appears that Londoners spend more than triple this amount of time on their commute – 96 working days in a year. PRimage agree that the enormous amount of time and money spent on commuting needs to be addressed.

Heathrow’s T5 turmoils and traveller’s travails – PRimage view

Friday, March 28th, 2008

Judy Viitanen and the PRimage team are regular long-haul business travellers with BA from Heathrow – but we will think seriously before booking any future flights with British Airways after seeing the turmoil yesterday at the cavernous new £4.3 billion pound Terminal 5! It seems that things are not much better today, with BA cancelling a fifth of flights from Heathrow, as the chaos of its shambolic opening spilled into a second day. In our view, BA certainly need to do a lot of ‘damage limitation’ if they want to preserve their PR image and restore their damaged reputation! What’s your view?
