A night out in town with the Street Pastors. What an experience and what commitment.
The evening started quietly enough with an amble down Church Street and past our beautifully lit cathedral; and ended up with some valuable saves. Great relationships with all the doormen, CCTV HQ, the police and more importantly the public. The team got a lot of thank yous and - what great work you do “Street Pasties - you saved my mate…”
The Lean on Me team looked after a couple of incidents. All volunteers, all amazing.
Thank you Mark, Val and Angie (my team), Steve (in charge of the “donkey”), Anthony and the guys from Hereford 6th Form. What a commitment. I was quite happy to find my bed at 430am; and they go out every weekend 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
