The prison

My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed lunch at the prison. The staff (inmates) were lovely, polite, friendly young men and the food was lovely. The portions were very generous too so I haven't needed any tea. There is a small shop selling handmade garden ornaments and plants and I bought two purple kale plants which will feed us right the way through the winter. It was nice to be able to buy them individually. I don't want to have to buy a pack of twelve kale plants from the garden centre.  Tony is off out to the pub tonight so I might have an early night and read my book

  1. Glad you had a good experience at the prison. We have people from the local prison working with us and they've been great to work with and get to know in general.

  2. I think it's a wonderful win/win situation!
    I'd have loved to go along.

  3. That's a great idea. We have a restaurant here that does the same thing for the homeless. It's so important to have passions and a skill to earn money. Everyone loves food.

  4. A friend of our friends is working with various prisons to help prisoners become trainers for helper dogs. It is a fairly new project and working out very well.
