On the assumption that some of the Prison Officers live in Lewes, there will be quite a bit of extra cash floating around the town.

I don't follow you JoJo. Why do you think P.O's live in Lewes and will fund a boom ?

Perhaps the Malling estate and Community Centre would benefit.
Is there still a hard-core of prison officers living in the area?
There used to be a great social scene there a few years back.

Thanks for the link stig. It's probably true BUT what hasn't been said is that this wonderful "new enhanced rate" is what the screws started on a few years ago and the Tories cut the starting rate for new recruits then wondered why no one stayed in the job. Don't even get me started about way back when the screws had their own houses in the town and a damned good pension when they retired, and social housing to live in too.

Crikey, no chips on your shoulder eh, Old Lag?
Owned their own houses and social housing to live in too! - presumably, they lived in the social housing and let out their own homes?

The prison officers I knew in Malling were good people.
Community minded and took pride in their work.
I can't see what's wrong about that.

They had their own prison supplied (tied) houses, then were supplied with social housing when retired. Don't try to be pedantic/funny.

They should let more prisoners out into the community then you wouldn't have all these problems with overcrowding. Most of these are good folks and I wouldn't mind seeing them walk around Lewes. They could even spend their subs which would be a boost for the local economy.

Old lag - maybe having decent incentives such as housing, ensured long term commitment to the job and loyalty.
They took pleasure in their work and supported each other and their families.
Lewes Prison is/was not a great environment to be working in each day.
The fact that you were neighbours with your work colleagues can only be a bonus in such testing circumstances.
