Heidi from Probation's blog

If your passing

I was amazed to see that things (by that I mean things we planted!) are actually growing on our plot.  This, despite the fact that some of the lads planted the bean seeds by throwing them, like a set of darts, into the 3 ft holes created by the other lads!  But grow they have and not only was I impressed, some of the lads were really chuffed.


An up hill struggle

Good morning all,

Let me introduce myself, I am Heidi Portrey and I work one day a week for the probation service

supervising offenders whilst they carry out community payback (community service in old money!).


I happened to mention that I enjoyed gardening and had my own little veg plot at home to one of my bosses. 

The next thing is I have been given the responsibility of building the plot at LRA!.
