Re: Fitness test bleep test

I went in sports gear as did everyone else also :) Yes you'll be able to use your inhaler I'd imagine, can't see why you wouldn't be allowed!

Re: Vetting Process

Literally just got through to someone now! She has added me onto the evening teams list for them to call me for a start date, she doesn't think it'll be today as the list is quite long but atleast I'm on it, she said one day this week so fingers crossed again now haha!
