A quiz for cops


Yesterday I printed and laminated lots and lots of our SMILE cards ready to t ake them in the New Year to our friends in the police.

Shops  are publishing their opening hours over Christmas, the police have not published their opening hours - they are 24/7/365.

Only essential retail is open - the cops are open no matter what lock down tier we are in officers will always be on dut y.
