Ilfracombe Street Pastors celebrate milestone
ILFRACOMBE Street Pastors are celebrating their second anniversary.
The group held its first AGM on Thursday January 13 with Street Pastors, local church leaders and members of the management committee were present. Also it was the launch of their own DVD which outlines their work.
“This was a particularly important milestone in the ongoing work of Street Pastors,” said Mike and Yvonne Norris, who jointly coordinate the project
There are currently 24 Street Pastors drawn from churches in town and villages across North Devon and since project began it seems the High Street in Ilfracombe has become a safer area, but the Street Pastors are not taking all the credit for this:
“The success of Street Pastors in Ilfracombe has been a joint partnership with all agencies that have a safer North Devon as their agenda,” added Mike and Yvonne.

It is hoped that as more Street Pastors come on board, patrols will be able to start on Friday nights too and if there is a need areas such as Woolacombe can be covered during the summer months.
