THE STREET pastors who look after drunken revellers in the town centre have signed an official agreement with the police.

The Memorandum of Understanding saw the street pastors commended for the work they do in supporting the night time economy by helping to keep people safe. 

The pastors are a group of volunteers who are out on Friday and Saturday nights from about 10.00pm until 4.00am.

They  carry a supply of flip-flops, lollipops, water, basic first aid kits and space blankets and often step in to help mediate arguments.
