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.

Parkrun in prison.

Post by Burtonboy » Fri Nov 03, 2017 9:29 pm

So apparently there is a new park run starting tomorrow in the grounds of HMP Haverigg, it’s only for staff and inmates obviously but they hope to allow family’s participate once a year as well.

Just wondered what people’s views are on this?

Had to google it to see exactly what it was all about.. 'These events take place in pleasant parkland surroundings'
I'm jealous that HMP haverigg has its own park! :slwh:
Will be embarrassing though when all the prisoners outrun the officers haha

It sounds a good idea to me.

Think John McAvoy...
