Covid restrictions

Post by TMH90 » Sun Jun 21, 2020 5:50 pm

So, I’m sure everyone is aware of the restrictions that are rumoured to be relaxed in the coming week or so which may bode well for new applicants/recruits. There’s talk of the 2m social distancing rule being reduced to 1m. Could this see assessment centres opening their doors perhaps 🤔.

Also who’s desperate for a hair cut? 🙋🏻‍♂️

😂 me too. I shaved mine off back in April but it’s past due again. The mrs won’t let me go at it again as the number 2 guard I was using fell off mid stroke resulting in me having to take the whole thing down to the bone 😂

I’ve been a skinhead since April, done to the bone, go over it once a week, if left any longer then the bald spots are well and truly visible !! Look like someone from Lindisdarne !

I must say youtube has come in very handy recently. Me and my Mrs between us managed to give me a skin fade, just as good as the barbers do after watching a few "how tos" on there.

I was told the assessment centers are opening probably in august when I called up about my interview. So not to far away and I bet some will open up before
