During September there were:

  • 3 Friday night patrols
  • 3 Saturday night patrols
  • 6 Patrols totalling 31 hours of cover involving 21 Street Pastors
  • 13 pairs of flip-flops were given and 450 lollies and Love Hearts

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

  • Walked a lady home who had fallen over and was upset
  • Helped to calm a group of men that were in disagreement over something
  • Looked after a young lady that was upset and alone
  • Cared for a young lady that had drunk too much

A couple alerted Street Pastors to a group that was getting into a heated debate. Our team spent some time with the group listening to both sides and worked out that it was probably a storm in a teacup with each side misunderstanding the other. Happily we encouraged each side to go their separate ways.

Police requested our help to look after a young lady who had drunk too much and was having difficulty walking. We stayed with her until a family member came to collect her and take her home.

One of our teams found a young lady upset and alone in Wantage. Her brand-new, mum-bought-it, day-old phone got dropped and wasn’t working! Again our team stayed with her until she was collected by her mum.

Another of our teams found a lady sat on the ground who had apparently fallen over and hurt her knee. We offered to walk home with her and were able to support her as she was a little unsteady on her feet.
