HMP Gartree Annual Celebration Event

It was my pleasure as High Sheriff of Leicestershire to attend the annual celebration event at HMP Gartree.

The event was the second year it was being held is to celebrate the achievements of the individuals who reside at HMP Gartree.

I was asked to attend in full uniform (sorry no photos allowed) and after saying a few words about my role and uniform I helped present some certificates to prisoners. I then had the opportunity speak to many of them informally afterwards. Thank you for making me so welcome and it was such a great atmosphere in the room.

HMP Gartree is a category B lifer establishment holding indeterminate/life sentenced prisoners.

Thank you to Milton Keynes College and its staff for organising the event, and all of the staff working within Education, Skills and Work who have contributed to the nominations, and the prison kitchen for organising some of the food and drink.
