Story

I, Ben Smith, have been selected to represent Derbyshire scouts to visit and support the World Scout Jamboree in West Virginia, I must raise £3600 by June 2019. Every little helps, thank you.

So yesterday evening, 8th January, my dad was looked up at Ripley Police Station holding cells. I was expecting bars like you see in the films but no just a solid door. Detainees, 'miscreants' are one per cell. There are male, female and juvenile - under 18's sections. My dad refused the porridge but had some water, which he tried to throw over me through the hatch - he had to clean the cell. He mentioned the tough epoxy coatings lining the cell is something Fosroc could supply. He doesn't look too clever this morning! Big thanks for all your support and to Derbyshire Police Force. Hopefully one and only visit.
