Street Pastors enjoyed fairly peaceful patrols in February and March – in part due to cold or wet weather, which usually encourages people to head home fairly quickly.

One night Street Pastors heard a thud followed by laughter and went to investigate. A lady had fallen down between the pavement and a parked car. Our team went to help get her up and check that she was ok.

One of our teams cleared up a lot of broken glass (mostly vodka or wine bottles) from the Undercroft car park, from outside Sainsbury’s and from the corner of Grove Street and the Market Place.

Another team met a young man who was struggling to walk having injured himself on a skateboard earlier in the day. We helped him get to the bus stop and made sure he headed home safely.

We spent a lot of time chatting to different people. One young man we had met some months previously and who had shared some of his mental health struggles with us, and another young man who had been injured in a fight.

We helped one man by charging his mobile phone so that he could call his brother.
