Andover Street Pastors were recently awarded a grant of £500 from the Test Valley Borough Council Community Safety Group for training and uniforms for their six new trainees.  Barry Wadhams the coordinator said  ‘This is a tremendous encouragement to us. We have struggled with numbers having lost some of our longest serving members recently. Rev Les Isaac came to visit us earlier in the year as we celebrated five years patrolling in Andover and following his visit we have taken on six new recruits.  So it will be a great blessing to be able to fund the start of their journey with us.’
