During June there were:

  • 3 Friday night patrols
  • 3 Saturday night patrols
  • 6 Patrols totalling 31 hours of cover involving 19 Street Pastors
  • 7 pairs of flip-flops were given and 330 lollies and Love Hearts

Here are some of the ways Street Pastor teams cared, listened and helped in June:

  • Spent time with young people at Sweatbox Youth Club
  • Ensured a drunk and confused girl was being cared for by a friend
  • Gave a torch to a group of young people walking home in the dark
  • Supervised a group of around 50 people

One of our early patrols spent time with a young girl who was drunk, confused and displaying quite erratic behaviour. One of her friends came by and we were able to ensure she would get home safely with her friend. We provided flip-flops and water to make the journey that bit easier.

We spent quite a bit of time during June engaging with groups of young people in different places. Two of our teams visited Sweatbox Youth Club and we also spent time with young people in Manor Park. One of our teams gave a torch to a group of young people who were walking back to Letcombe Regis in the dark and another team gave bottles of water to a group of three young lads.

Late one night our team were on hand to help with a group of about 50 men and women that were waiting for buses and taxis in Wantage. We mostly just helped to pass the time with those who had a long wait but of course were there to help if anyone had need.

We met one girl who expressed how grateful she was to Street Pastors for the help we’ve given her over the years especially for the times we walked home with her.
