Rough Stuff

Rough Stuff

We work closely with the Mount Prison in Hertfordshire who make all our boards. This brings new pride, skills and job discipline to the inmates. We have a new dedicated, state of the art workshop inside The Mount Prison. Around 20 men are employed in the workshop Monday to Friday to keep up with the demand for our boards. The prisoners are directed by our talented workshop manager Steve who trains the inmates in new skills for woodwork and the self discipline of having a job to manage.
