Radnor? I was Fresher last year and applied for a room in Radnor but didnt get One, and I got stuck in Gilwell aswell!
My room was facing skivin scholar and cuba and ride, so i used to get music from all ends, its would be most annoying when your trying to get sleep due to starting work at 6am the next morning!!
I felt insecure in Gilwell, but thats only cos students were walking where they liked and trashed other peoples "Flats" oh yeah, and letting strangers into trash them was another big thing in Gilwell!
what floor were u on rich? I was 1st floor, but u had to goto the 2nd floor to get to mine cos it was like a little hidy hole where we were!
