Need to remember the prison is ours we just let them stay there. So none of this it's there house or own space. You can't go to a hotel and spark up?

I vaguely remember some movie where tons of missing people were returned to the planet including Glen Miller although he was slightly changed and now played reggae

In some YOI they do get gifts,socks or little stocking filler type things. Staff will usually get a longer dinner there will be a little fewer staff on over the whole day because bang up is usually earlier. You will tend to find its harder to bang up the more difficult cons near the end of your day over the festive period.

We're also doing something different again this year for food. Last year I did a tapas which was amazing. This year with be a 3 bird game pie (pheasant, partridge and duck - all shot locally and prepared by yours truly), roast potatoes and parsnips, carrots and peas with a home made stuffing.

Not sure on what the "new style is" but the actual status has changed to

Your application is currently going through pre-employment checks with either higher level checks and/or Health outstanding.

So looks like some progress has been made

After reading a few things on here, I was thinking of either calling the prison or going to see them (5 minute drive from my house). Apparently they can find out about your vetting position.

I bet you're running out of patience aren't you Karen? I'm on week 3 now and I'm running out! Lol

I called the prison as advised to by SS, I called 4 times (as each time they told me to call back & request a different department) in the end they promised to call me back, that was 3 weeks ago. I was told eventually that they couldn't tell me anything until they have been given my name & they don't give them your name until you've passed vetting :sloo: It's all a big mystery to Me!
I'm OK, am desperate for news that's all. My job is OK & my boss has been fab about it all, but i really would just like to know something :sloo:

Your references have been contacted then?

I've only been at my current job for 4 months so I'm not sure how they're going to take it when they get an email asking for a reference 😂

Hi, they don't always send to your house. Many have passed vetting without receiving any forms or anything. I'm in week 12 & have heard or received nothing to do with dbs. :slbg:
