JCP Engineers are pleased to announce a new member to our team! We have adopted Phyllis, a Female King Vulture currently in the care of the Hawk Conservancy in Andover. She arrived at the Trust in May 2010 to be paired with our male King Vulture. She came from Zoo d' Amneville in France and was born in 1985. She is a good match for our male who is genetically important in the breeding program. However whilst he seems very interested in getting to know her better. She seems more intent on getting to know the staff. On a positive not she has not tried to attack the male and we hope that once they settle in we might see some reproductive behaviour and maybe even a vulture chick next year.
The Hawk Conservancy’s mission is the conservation of birds of prey, please take the time to find out more at www.hawk-conservancy.org
. Thank you.
On the 8th of June 2014 our up and coming structural engineer Alex Thompson completed the Durrington triathlon challenge taking part in a 400m swim, 11 mile bike ride and finally a 3 mile run.
Alex said "the triathlon was a challenging and fun experience, being able to support local charity Lucy's Days out while doing this was wonderful. The atmosphere was lively with a great sense of community.
It is definitely something I would do again and hope to encourage the other members of JCP to join in next time".
Well done Alex, from all the team!
Lucy's Days Out is a small but important charity supporting local children.
Lucy Page was a bright, happy young girl who had lived with cancer a long time and treasured all her special days out.
When Lucy knew her cancer was untreatable, she asked her family to set up a charity in her memory. Lucy decided she would like families living with serious illnesses to enjoy special outings like the ones she had enjoyed.
To give a child a reason to smile is such a rewarding thing, also as a family it is a heart-warming experience to have a fun day amongst many dark days of hospital visits.
Lucy was very courageous and designed the title and logo, along with the charity aims, herself.
JCP Engineers recently had our Local Radio station Spire FM pop in for a surprise Cuppa whilst visiting local businesses. Engineer Charlie Blake gave an impromptu interview. Great way of receiving free advertising. Thanks Spire!
