VOLUNTEERS who patrol town centre streets to help late night revellers have a new coordinator to help run their popular scheme.
Anita Green, a member of Britwell Baptist Church, has been appointed as part-time coordinator for the Slough Street Angels group.
The angels are volunteers from churches who help people in vulnerable situations while on a night out in Slough every weekend.
Mrs Green said “I look forward to working with and getting to know Slough Street Angels. I hope that I can take Slough Street Angels to a new level.”
The post has been funded by Slough Borough Council and the Heathrow Communities Fund. An office has been set up at the Kingsway United Reform Church for her.
Anthony Stansfeld, police and crime commissioner for Thames Valley, said: “Working in partnership is important to me so I am delighted to have been able to help support the Slough Street Angels in appointing a coordinator. The practical assistance the Street Angels provide helps to prevent harm to those left vulnerable while out on Friday and Saturday nights.”
All appointed street angels are over 18 years old and have been DBS checked and received relevant training.
Rev Linda Hillier, chair of Slough Street Angels, added: “Kingsway elders and congregation welcome the strengthening ties with the Street Angels, and I hope that Anita will help the Street Angels make a difference in Slough.”
