They Stole Christmas!!!

Being fans of all things cheesey and ridiculous, good old Cryfield 2 Kitchen 4 put up some xmas decorations to bring some festivity to the prison in which we live.

Brilliant!! I hear you cry…...not so, let me explian:

Our cleaner, Patsy says they look great and she doesnt mind them being up as long as we tidy ti up before we go "no probs" say we collectivley.

Friday – bout a week since they went up ,our warden comes in and says hes been told that we have to take them down! But not all of them…..just the snow spray on the windows. We ask why and he quite politely says its not him (he quite likes it) but a cleaning supervisor from Rootes came over and went mental – apprently ITS A FIRE RISK!!! Now i may not be a scientist but i think that 1) if a flame could travel the 12 feet from the oven to the window we'd all be a bit buggered anyway…....and 2) even more buggered if the fire was so bad that the windows caught alight!!!

We kindly ignore what we'd been told ( Our warden not really careing what we did) but today weve been told if we dont get it off by tomorrow we will ALL be fined £20…..now £20×25 peopl in the kitchen…is thate enough money to hire a supervisor with more than one GCSE and some common sense?

  1. Fire risk is their excuse for everything; it's the excuse they use whenever anyone brings up the possibility of re-cycling facilities in halls.

  2. £20×25 people = 100 fivers. Thats a lot of paper. Think of the fire risk…

  3. Oh and think of the risk if the window was open as well – the fire could spread uncontrolably!!

    We've had the exact same thing Ian…and received a formal 'kitchen warning' for it! We were told that snow spray and fairy lights were a fire risk…so we had to remove all traces of christmas from our kitchen. Bah humbug! Laura x

  5. If ever they cite the 'fire risk' argument at you, enquire as to what exactly they consider the 20-odd text books and ring binders full of notes in your room to be.

    Worked with the paper we were saving in our kitchen to recycle.

    I've have fairy lights in my room all term so far, but nobody's said anything. Possibly because I don't make a habit of inviting Warwick Accommodation staff round. :)
