Cheltenham Street Pastors
Making a positive difference in the lives of young people
Over the years a number of our members from Bethesda have been accepted as Street Pastors which was launched on the streets of Cheltenham on Saturday 5th. December 2009. Insp. Jon Roberts from Gloucestershire police said: “From our point of view it’s a real positive; When incidents happen at night time, we don’t often get a chance to chat to people and build bridges. Hopefully, the Street Pastors will be able to fill that gap for us. It should complement the work we are doing.”
