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.
But boss boss....... NO.
No is a good word to have.
You can change a no to a yes easier than a yes to a no if your unsure.

Hi :slby:

Can anyone tell me the schedule for the RAD day please? By this I mean what comes first to last with each of the tests we have to undertake, I'm hoping the fit test is last so I'm not so tired for the rest of them :slre:

Thank you :slbg:

It varies from place to place. You do have your medical/eye test before fitness test though.
At my RAD my fitness test was last, but they split us into 2 different groups & the other group did it at a different point of the day. Good luck tomorrow :slbg:
