I had a new experience last night when I went out to observe the wonderful Stafford Street Pastors on shift round the pubs and clubs of Stafford. They do fantastic work with compassion and a light touch. Amongst other things they hand out flip flops, water, lollipops, etc, dispose of bottles & broken glass, check on the homeless and dispense comfort and advice. It was also good to see the excellent relationships they have with all the door staff. It was an enlightening couple of hours. My eyes have been opened!
