Street Pastors in Salisbury

Street Pastors in Salisbury
One of Salisbury's Street Pastors is joined by Salisbury Mayor John Collier on a Saturday night shift. The team of Street Pastors walk the street and check the welfare of night-clubbers and general public during the small hours.

Jobs starting at 10.30 on a Saturday night rarely flick my happiness switch but this one was great. I was taking a series of photographs for a feature in the Christmas edition of Wiltshire Life and although the main photographs were taken well past my bedtime it was a real eye-opener to the work they do.

For the the work the Street Pastors do along with other community initiatives the mayor has made his chosen charity for the Mayoral year.
