November 2012 News

Mayor of Doncaster Peter Davies and Deputy Mayor, Councillor Cynthia Ransome recently went out with Doncaster’s Street Pastors to demonstrate their commitment to this scheme.

On the evening of  Saturday 17th November they spent four hours between 9:30pm and 1:30am observing the work of volunteers who run the scheme and tirelessly give up their time to help people in different ways, including providing  a friendly word, a pair of flip flops to replace pinching dancing shoes or a warming blanket.

The scheme was launched December last year, in partnership with Doncaster Council and South Yorkshire Police. During this time, the Street Pastors have patrolled the streets on 53 nights giving a total of 906 Street Pastor hours.

Mayor of Doncaster, Peter Davies said: “I am very impressed with the work of the Street Pastors who voluntarily give up their evenings to support  town centre Street Scene staff and our colleagues in the Police. This is the second time I have seen them in action and they really are making a difference.”

Councillor Cynthia Ransome, Deputy Mayor and Cabinet Member for Communities, Street Scene and Environmental Protection added: “I am very grateful for all the work that Street Pastors do and especially recognise how they help to keep our streets free from broken glass, which is sadly often a by product of our vibrant evening economy.”
