Meet the JRP team

Jan Roscoe (Dip.Ed Lady Mabel College; B.Ed Hons Nottingham; M.Sc Liverpool John Moores) 

Jan Roscoe is an Olympian. She was part of the British Olympic Athletics Team (400m and 4x400m relay) in the 1972 (Munich) and 1976 (Montréal) Olympic Games. Jan has also competed in two Commonwealth Games, and in 1974 gained a Commonwealth hurdles record. She set personal bests in most of the major games in which she competed, and not surprisingly, this attitude permeates the whole of JRP’s business approach.

Our goods are always delivered quickly, and their service is excellent. If I need any information about a particular book, I know that I can email JRP and they will do their utmost to help me.
