After Northward inmates recently won first prize for best float at this year’s pirates week festivities the Prison Director Neil Lavis said the victory is a start of things to come.
Mr. Lavis said he is impressed with the work in creating the float after being approached by the Credit Union for assistance in making the craft.
He said he is elated with the inmates winning the prize for best float and said the prize is a consolation for their time and effort.
“They are here for long periods of time they work very hard and they produce some wonderful things so we are really pleased to get involved in this and as you can see the results were that we took the first prize and that’s marvelous and a credit to the inmates who work over there,” Mr. Lavis said.
The float was made as apart of the prison’s vocational programme.
