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.

Anyone about to start work in HMP Chelmsford ?

Post by Ivolution » Thu Sep 14, 2017 1:19 am

Hi guys ,


I got the call on Monday and arranged my start date (27th of November). Is there anyone who already works or is about to start working in HMP Chelmsford and how do you find it there ? There has been bad publicity regarding that prison and people I spoke to during my RAD seemed a bit shocked that I want to work there. Thank you in advance for your help .


Kind Regards,

Ivo Vasilev
