Weymouth Street Pastors Celebrate 15 Years of Service to the Community

Weymouth Street Pastors are celebrating their 15th birthday today, marking a milestone in their mission to serve and support the local community. The group, which was founded in 2008, has been providing assistance to vulnerable people in the town centre on Friday and Saturday nights ever since.

The Weymouth Street Pastors are a group of volunteers from local churches who offer practical support, care, and assistance to anyone who needs it. They are a visible presence on the streets, offering help to those who are vulnerable, intoxicated, or in need of medical attention. They provide first aid, water, blankets, and even flip flops to those who have lost their shoes.

Over the past 15 years, the Weymouth Street Pastors have become an integral part of the town’s nightlife scene. They are highly respected by the local authorities, the police, and the public for their commitment to helping those in need. They have also worked closely with local businesses and have been instrumental in reducing the number of incidents of anti-social behaviour in the town centre.

In a statement, the Weymouth Street Pastors said: “We are so grateful to everyone who has supported us over the past 15 years. Our volunteers, our supporters, our partners, and the people we have helped – we couldn’t have done it without you. We are proud of what we have achieved, but we know there is still work to be done. We will continue to serve and support the people of Weymouth for as long as we are needed.”

The Weymouth Street Pastors have been a shining example of how a group of committed volunteers can make a positive difference in their community. They have provided comfort, care, and compassion to those who need it most and have helped to create a safer and more welcoming town centre. Here’s to the next 15 years of service to the community!
