Hello everyone,

I will be soon starting my Poelt at Newbold and joined the forum which is a brilliant source of information. Thanks to all its contributors.

I have a few questions which I hope to get an answer to:

What can I do now to best prepare me for the Poelt?
I completed and returned the uniform order form. When will I be issued with this? My first day I will be reporting at my HMP, would it be normal not to have my uniform by then?
Will I be wearing my uniform or my own black/trouser-white shirt during the Poelt?

Tell me all about Newbold please:

Will I be room sharing or will I have my own accommodation? Are toilets facilities shared?
Is there a laundry room?
Is it possible/acceptable to go out in the evening 3x a week for training?

That's all for now, thank you

Hi Stella

I got my uniform on my first W eek at my establishment, I was advised to wear my own clothes on the first day but to try a match the uniform. White shirt, black trousers, black shoes/ boots.

At Newbold you’ll have you’re own room with en-suite. The size of the room depends on which accommodation block you’re in. There is shared kitchens in most of the accommodation blocks that also have washing machines and tumble dryers.

Many people did go out at Newbold but most socialised in the bar on site. Newbold is in between two little villages that have pubs but the closest towns ( rugby and Coventry ) you would have to drive to, but they’re not that far.

Good luck
